Key West Grilled Chicken

This is an easy, inexpensive and very flavorful weeknight dinner. Most of these ingredients are items that are already in our house on a regular basis so it is an easy go to. It is great now that summer is here to use fresh limes that are on sale with your pretien of choice on the grill outside! If you do them in a kebab format add in some veggies and you are ready for a weekend BBQ! You can also substitute shrimp if you prefer, just don't let it marinade as long since the acid in the lime will start to cook it. According to Jason this was "great" so goes down as a keeper in our house.

Key West Grilled Chicken
Serves: 4
Source: Grocery Budget 101

3 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
Juice of 1 Lime
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

In a ziploc bag combine soy sauce, honey, vegetable oil, lime juice and garlic. Place chicken breasts into mixture and and turn to coat. Seal the bag and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. If you prefer kebabs, cut the chicken into large chunks and skewer onto bamboo sticks that have been soaked in water for 5 minutes so they don't burn on the grill. (For a zestier version add a teaspoon of  fresh chopped cilantro to marinade)

Grill chicken on medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes per side until juices run clear, depending on thickness of chicken.

Pin It!
