Grilled Honey Lime Cilantro Chicken

by Hilary Gauntt on June 30, 2017

So glad I found this recipe just in time for Fourth of July! The marinade really permeates the chicken, and the flavor is incredible. The skinless, boneless pieces cook quickly, and stay tender and juicy (I’ve only tried it with thighs so far). Really wished I had cooked more so there would be some left for lunch today. Thank you to The Recipe Critic blog for this keeper.

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, or thighs

1/4 cup lime juice

1/2 cup honey

2 Tbs. soy sauce

1 Tbs. olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

Put chicken in a ziplock bag. In a small bowl combine lime juice, honey, soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, cilantro, salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the chicken and seal the bag and let marinate for 3 hours or overnight.

Preheat your grill to medium high heat. Grill each side of the chicken for about 3-4 minutes or until cooked throughout and no longer pink. Serves 3-4.
