Honey Lime Grilled Chicken Marinade Recipe

As soon as the weather starts to warm up, we start to grill (even if the forecast says snow, but it’s still going to be 50 degrees outside for the day).

It’s always a quick, easy way to get dinner on the table and when the heat of the summer hits – it’s nice to not have to turn on your oven.

We are HUGE fans of the honey-lime flavor combination (enter: our ever-popular honey lime enchiladas), so we couldn’t resist marinading chicken and grilling it for summer.

Ingredients needed for this Honey Lime Chicken Marinade Recipe:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

How to make this Honey Lime Grilled Chicken Marinade:

  • 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 – about 6-8 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts.

Grilling this Honey Lime Chicken breast doesn’t have to be difficult.  Follow these steps for the best grilled chicken:

  • Store your chicken separately from other food in the fridge. Keep your raw chicken on the bottom shelf of the fridge so it doesn’t drip onto other foods.
  • Always thaw chicken in the refrigerator instead of leaving it out  at room temperature.  When you thaw chicken in the microwave, it begins cooking the meat immediately and can cause harmful bacteria to grow if it isn’t completely cooked all at once.
  • Add flavor by marinating.  If you are using a marinade as a basting or dipping sauce, set aside a portion for later before adding the raw meat to it.
