Honey-Lime Grilled Chicken

Are you tired of the same old chicken?  Eating it day in and day out can be gruesome.  There are only some many ways to make it, right? WRONG!  This honey-lime grilled chicken gives a new meaning to chicken.  So long to those bland flavors, and hello to the new, healthy chicken.

Chicken is a great source of protein that I eat often.  I’ve gotten bored of the same methods of oven-roasted chicken.  There are only so many sauces to cover it up.  The marinade here gives the chicken a quite different flavor profile that masks the chicken well.  Keep in mind that since it is marinated that it will need time to sit in the refrigerator before cooking to enhance all
the flavors.

Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind.

  1. You can use fresh limes and juice them, but you would be going through quite a bit of limes.  We used the bottled lime juice about one bottle should do.
  2.  The thyme and rosemary can be added in by the stems so that they can easily be picked out.  You wouldn’t want to chop on one of them because they are hard
    and strong.
  3. You can chop the amount of oil in half for a healthier amount and just spray top of the grill with cooking oil.
  4. Make sure they have a nice charcoal on them to add crispiness to the chicken.

Dig in and enjoy another chicken with extreme flavor.  This recipe won’t leave you hanging on the same bland chicken.  It has an interesting flavor that makes it unusual but delicious.  Pair it with some grilled sweet corn and roasted carrots for a delicious and healthy dish that will satisfy your rumbling tummy.
