A delicious blend of honey and lime marinated for a summer grill out or picnic
- 1 lb. boneless chicken breast, sliced into strips
- 1 large lime, using juice only
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- A pinch of salt
Make sure that all ingredients are at room temperature. This will allow the marinade to soak into the chicken meat.
In a bowl, combine the chicken, honey, mustard, lime juice and salt. Allow to marinade for about 20 minutes.
For extra tender and juicy chicken, you can marinate the meat for up to 4 hours in the refrigerator.
Sprinkle chicken with a little chili powder before grilling.
When ready to cook, preheat your grill so that gives off medium heat. Both stove top grills and outdoor grills works well. Grill chicken at about 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the chicken.
Make sure to check the caramelization on both sides to not burn or overcook your chicken.
Marinate your chicken in a mixture of honey and lime juice with a kick of Dijon mustard for extra flavor. Leave marinating ingredients sit on your kitchen counter at room temperature. This helps the chicken marinate quicker and become more tastier.
