Honey Lime Chicken


I had been messing around with these ingredients for months and at 9:30 one morning I finally got it right! (Yes, I was grilling at 9:30 a.m. and eating chicken as my second breakfast.) This chicken tastes great with a romaine salad and a side of corn, or sliced and turned into tacos with rice and beans.


  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 boneless, skinless half chicken breasts (about 6 oz each)
  • 1/2 tsp lime zest
  • cooking spray

Preparation Time: 15 minutes, plus 4-24 hours to marinate

Combine 2 tablespoons honey and next 7 ingredients (through garlic) in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken; seal bag. Marinate in refrigerator overnight, turning occasionally.

Preheat grill to high heat.

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon honey and lime rind. Remove chicken from bag, discarding marinade. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 5 minutes on each side, basting with honey mixture during last 2 minutes of cooking time. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.
