Honey-Lime Grilled Chicken – chicken breasts marinated in lime juice, honey, rosemary, garlic and thyme. Grilled to perfection! This was SO good – juicy and packed full of flavor!
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!
Honey Lime Grilled Chicken
4 chicken breasts
½ cup lime juice
⅓ cup oil
3 Tbsp honey
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
3 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ tsp black pepper
- Combine lime juice, oil, honey, thyme, rosemary, garlic and pepper. Pour it over chickens in a ziplock bag.
- Refrigerate for at least 3 hours up to overnight.
- Remove chicken from marinade and grill until done and juices run clear.
what would you serve with this?
Can you use this for other cuts (thighs & drumsticks?)
I think thighs and drumsticks would be delicious! Enjoy!
Elizabeth – I used boneless skinless chicken breasts. Hope you enjoy it!
This looks delicious! Thanks for posting the recipe. Did you use bine in skin on breasts, or boneless, skinless breasts?
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.
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.
this chicken recipe is amazing i have try it and my husband love it
I agree with the comment above. Would oven or skillet work ok?
Do you think this would work in the oven? It's bit too cold out for grilling right now! 🙂
Elizabeth – you can use canola oil or olive oil. I usually use olive oil.
What kind of oil are you referring to? I'm a newbie cook and I don't want to make a rookie mistake 🙂

I agree with Chris. Love the honey and lime and then with thyme??? yum.
I know the primary flavor was lime but I don't think you can beat thyme for great grilled chicken.
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…
This chicken looks absolutely amazing! I want to eat this every night for dinner!
The first meal my husband ever cooked for me was on Valentine's day while we were dating. He made honey lime chicken and it was love at first bite!! Delicious!
I can see why you like that site. You've been putting out some great looking food!
Steph, I love marinating chicken…and this looks like a wonderful recipe to add to our repertoire 🙂
