Honey-Lime Grilled Chicken
Honey-Lime Grilled Chicken is so good! I like to serve it on top of salads or with a rice pilaf and grilled pineapple, it's one of my best marinades.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 chicken breast (I use boneless-skinless)
  • ½ cup lime juice (2 large squeezed)
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, dried
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary, dried
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • black pepper
To make the marinate: Combine lime juice, oil, honey, thyme, rosemary, garlic and pepper.
  1. Pour it over washed and dried chicken breasts in a zip top bag.
  2. Flip bag back and forth and refrigerate for 3 hours minimum.
  3. Grill (or broil) till juices run clear.
How to grill chicken:
  1. My guy recommends grilling (on a gas grill) 10 to 15 minutes per side.
  2. He sets his grill on the low setting and cooks his chicken a little longer.
  3. He likes to judge when the chicken is done by the touch and how the chicken looks.
  4. Chicken should feel firm to the touch, but not hard, when it's done.
  5. The outside of the chicken should be well-browned on both sides.
  6. You can also use a meat thermometer to check the temperature (USDA recommended temperature is 165 F for chicken breasts.)
  7. Cooking time will depend on the temperature of the chicken, how hot the grill is, the thickness of the chicken breasts, and even weather conditions if you're cooking outside.
