Ginger, Lime and Sriracha Chicken

Tom and I have been trying really hard to eat home more often then we usually do. When we get busy or tired we end up just ordering in or going out to dinner. We just want to eat healthier and a good way to do that is just to make a quick meal at home. This recipe was so quick and utilizes very little effort so it was great way to accomplish our goal of eating at home. The recipe also calls for very little ingredients most of which I usually have at home. Many of you probably don’t have scallions lying around but it’s always good to have. If you don’t need them for another recipe you can always throw them into rice or an omelet. So when you are busy and need a quick meal to make at home I hope you consider this recipe. Enjoy!
