This Honey-Lime marinade makes the most flavorful and delicious chicken! This chicken is perfect to top a salad with, or to eat as a main dish with just a squeeze of lime juice!
I make a lot of chicken. A lot of my recipes for this blog involve chicken. I buy boneless, skinless, chicken breasts in bulk. So I am always looking for different chicken marinades or rubs. Because chicken can be very bland if you don’t use some sort of marinade or rub. If you are always looking for new ways to make chicken too, you really need to try this recipe! Additionally, my Chili Lime Chicken marinade is also a delicious marinade for chicken that I make all the time – and it’s simple, too.
Same thing with this recipe – it’s super easy. It’s also very delicious – I’ve even use this marinade as a salad dressing sometimes.
The flavors in this recipe give the chicken a nice kick, while the lime juice definitely brightens up the flavors. The acidity from the lime juice and vinegar also help to tenderize the chicken. You can marinate this chicken for up to two hours in the fridge.
Whenever I cook chicken, I usually pound it out in order to tenderize it. No one likes tough chicken. I use a meat mallet to pound out my chicken. I typically do this every single time that I cook chicken. It makes the chicken very tender. If you have never pounded your chicken breasts out, I would definitely recommend it. My husband always requests that I do this with chicken. It also helps the chicken to cook faster because it isn’t as thick.
For this chicken,first pound out the chicken, then put it in a plastic bag, pour your marinade into the bag, and massage the marinade into the chicken. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, but up to two hours. Let the chicken sit out at room temperature for about 15-30 minutes before cooking. This allows for the chicken to cook more evenly. The chicken can be cooked on the grill or on the stove top.
I always squeeze a little lime juice on the chicken as soon as it is finished cooking. It gives it an extra boost of flavor. Let the chicken rest for about 5 minutes before cutting so that the chicken remains juicy and delicious. No one likes dry chicken!
This chicken be eaten as is, or put on top of a salad, in tacos, or in fajita bowls.
