This recipe for Honey-Lime Grilled Chicken is a simple thing we make for dinner when we need something simple, but it is also a recipe we really enjoy. Marinating is the longest part of the recipe, but even an hour will give great tasting results!
The marinade ingredients are simple: Italian Dressing, Honey, and Lime Juice. Fresh works best, but I will admit to have used the bottled stuff from time to time…
Mixing the marinade ingredients in a disposable bag will make clean up a lot easier. I put the ingredients in the bag then squish (technical term) them around to mix. Add your chicken and make sure it is coated, then tie the top and put it in the fridge to marinate.
My preferred way to grill the chicken is on high, directly over the flame. I flip it every few minutes to keep it from getting too dark. When I decide it is done I then take it off the grill and wrap it in foil. Since I use thin cuts of chicken I do not use a thermometer to measure the temperature. Boneless chicken breast should have no pink on the inside when done.
My preferred method to serve chicken like this is to cut it into strips then serve it atop a salad. It works perfectly well to serve with sides too. It’s a very versatile recipe and I hope you enjoy it!
Honey-Lime Grilled Chicken
- 1 lb. boneless Chicken (cut into pieces or flattened)
- 1/2 cup Italian Dressing
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 2 teaspoons honey
- Mix all ingredients in a plastic bag then add raw chicken.
- Place in refrigerator and let marinate for 1-8 hours.
- When ready to cook, preheat grill on high.
- Using tongs place chicken directly over flame and turn every 3-4 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
- Eat as is or serve atop salad.
Tip: Don’t have a grill? You can cook this in a skillet on a stovetop. Just dump the entire contents of the bag into a large skillet and cook on medium high heat. Stir occasionally to brown all sides of the chicken and to keep from scorching.
