Honey Lime Chicken

This is super simple, and really tasty!

Our family likes this one on the grill, served with some grilled veggies - bell peppers, zucchini, red potatoes and onions - or corn on the cob.  It's a great summer meal, or a taste of summer in the middle of winter, if you're willing to brave the cold to grill (or use a grill pan, I guess...). 

4 chicken breasts, boneless & skinless (might need to pound them out for even thickness)
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup lime juice
1/2 cup honey

In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice and honey, stirring well. Put chicken in a ziploc bag or freezer container and pour sauce over top. Refrigerate for about 1 hour, turning every 15-20 minutes. Place container or bag in freezer.

To cook:
Thaw chicken in refrigerator overnight. Remove chicken from marinade and barbeque on the grill, or cook in the oven at 350F for 35-45 minutes (time will vary depending on chicken) until juices run clear and thermometer registers 165F.

  1. Quick note: if you see "(FF)" that means it's a freezer-friendly meal.
