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.
HONEY LIME CHICKEN
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…
