Honey Lime Chicken

Hey there–  Honey–Lime–Cilantro.  On chicken.  That’s a recipe that I couldn’t resist trying out.  So last night when our parents came to dinner, I grilled it up along with cilantro rice (my favorite!), watermelon & cantaloupe (it IS summer) and a bright green salad with red and yellow tomatoes from Larry’s garden.  A table full of fresh.

2 chicken breasts, filleted
3 tab.  soy sauce
2 tab. honey
1 tab. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tab. lime juice
3 tab. cilantro, chopped finely

Cut the chicken breasts lengthwise to make 2 or 3 thinner flat chicken pieces.  In a flat baking dish mix the soy sauce, honey, oil, garlic, lime juice and cilantro.  Stir them up well and then marinate the chicken in the mixture for a couple hours, turning occasionally.  Then grill the chicken about 4 minutes on each side on the bar-bque or in a nonstick pan sprayed with cooking spray.

Pretty simple and summery.  I’m going to try the same marinade on salmon and see how it comes out…
