Easy Cilantro Lime Chicken

So easy! And delicious! First time I added the marinade as I seared the chicken, second time after I seared it. Prefer the second method. I let the marinade cook at high temp a couple min before putting the skillet in the oven. Both times I used boneless, skinless thighs but next time will follow recipe and expect even better taste
