Honey-Lime Grilled Chicken


I found this chicken recipe on Pinterest (my favorite source for inspiration).  I was excited to give this recipe a try since it uses limes.  We eat a lot of lemon chicken, but not a lot of lime chicken.

This chicken couldn't be easier.  Just mix up the marinade, let the chicken marinate a few hours or overnight and grill.  The chicken was really, really good.  It was extremely moist and flavorful, and we really loved the slight sweetness from the honey.  We will definitely be making this again!

  5. For a while, El Pollo Loco had a tequila lime chicken that was wonderful. I'm thinking the honey is going to put this one over the top! I'll be making it tomorrow for dinner...

  6. I know the primary flavor was lime but I don't think you can beat thyme for great grilled chicken.

  9. What kind of oil are you referring to? I'm a newbie cook and I don't want to make a rookie mistake :)

  10. Elizabeth - you can use canola oil or olive oil. I usually use olive oil.

  14. Hi, I notice some other people asked this question, but I do not find a response, so I will ask the same thing. Can you make this in the oven, and at what temperature and time. Thank you so much.

  15. I cut the ingredients in half and baked 2 chicken thighs in the oven at 375 F for an hour. Because I got busy the meat marinated for two days in the frig and I included the zest in the marinade but left out the thyme and rosemary because I forgot it. Did the garlic. That lime made all the difference in the world to the flavor of the chicken. It was so good that I'm setting up to make it again this week for dinner.
