Mexican Lime Chicken

2 chicken breasts (can use boneless and skinless if desired - See note*)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 lime
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon coriander, ground
1/2 teaspoon paprika
6 cloves garlic, unpeeled
2 red chilies

Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).

Mix olive oil with coriander, paprika, sugar and the zest of the lime. Cover chicken breasts in marinade, squeeze juice of 1/2 lime over the meat, and place in fridge for at least 30 minutes.

When ready to bake, place chicken breasts in a baking dish and place 2 lime slices under the skin of each breast. Place garlic and chilies around the chicken and roast for 30-35 minutes.

*Note: Roast for less time if using boneless and skinless chicken breasts.

*Can also bake chicken with some crushed fresh garlic added.
