Honey Lime Chipotle Grilled Chicken

Monday, June 16, 2014

I have a SERIOUS addiction to grilling chicken!  I have been posting a ton of grilled chicken recipes lately because quite frankly I LOVE our new barbecue!  I absolutely LOVE playing around with marinades and then serving the beautiful grilled chicken over a lovely salad, folded into some delicious tacos, or served alongside some brown rice and asparagus.  YUM!  It's the perfect answer to dinner in the summer!  This particular marinade was an experiment gone RIGHT!  I served it over a beautiful bed of romaine lettuce, sautéed bell peppers and onions, and brown rice- what I call chicken fajita bowl!  Yum!

Honey Lime Chipotle Grilled Chicken

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • juice and zest of 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp. honey (I use a really lovely local organic honey)
  • 1/4 tsp. chipotle chili powder (you can use more if you want it spicy but chipotle chili powder can be VERY strong and a little goes a long way)
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
Place the chicken in a large ziplock bag.  In a bowl, whisk the rest of the ingredients together.  If you taste the marinade and it is too hot, add a little more honey.  Pour the marinade over the chicken in the bag.  Seal the bag squeezing the air out as you seal.  Massage the marinade into the chicken and place in the fridge to marinate 2 hours up to 8 hours (the longer you marinate, the better the flavor). 

Until next time, Happy and HEALTHY cooking!
