You can’t have too many simple marinades for grilled chicken and this one is quick, easy and very tasty. A quick dip in this marinade for 15-20 minutes and another 10 or so on the grill and this is dinner in about a half hour. We serve ours with a great pasta salad or a garden salad for a quick summer workday meal off the grill.
I almost always plan to grill an extra chicken breast when using this recipe so that I can make one of my favorite chicken salad sandwiches the next day for lunch. I mix it with some homemade lime chive mayonnaise and chopped red pepper and serve it on lightly toasted whole wheat bread for a very satisfying mid-day meal.
4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
Mix together in a large Ziploc bag
1/4 cup lime juice
zest of one lime, finely minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
Add the chicken breasts to the bag, seal it and let the chicken marinate in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Grill until completely cooked on a medium hot grill. Let the cooked chicken rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
