honey lime grilled chicken marinade

Barbecue season is slowly drawing to an end and I’m trying to milk it as long as I can! I tried out this marinade and was impressed by the results. The chicken was moist and the flavours were just right. It would probably be great cooked under the broiler when it’s too cold and miserable out to use the grill.

Honey Lime Grilled Chicken Marinade
4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup lime juice
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 Tbsp honey
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp black pepper

Combine lime juice, oil, honey, thyme, rosemary, garlic and pepper. Pour it over chickens in a ziploc bag. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours up to overnight. Grill until done and juices run clear.per

To get your chicken to cook evenly, pound slightly the chicken until it’s evenly thick. Place the chicken on a lightly oiled, hot grill. Close the lid and cook for 6 minutes. Turn and close the lid again for another 5 minutes.

Despite my meat looking it died a horribly painful death by fire, it was so tender and juicy. I promise!
