Honey Lime Chicken is tangy, sweet, and delicious. It is super easy to make, only requiring a few ingredients. It can be grilled outside, but can also be cooked in the oven so you can make it any time of the year.

I love this time of year because it is the perfect time to grill outdoors. The temperature is just about right and it is staying light longer, so I (and by I, I mean my husband) am not grilling in the dark.

We are still limited by the wind here in Kansas, but overall there are many good outdoor grilling days.

My husband loves everything citrus and it is rubbing off on me when it comes to savory dishes. I still don’t care for that many citrus-y desserts, but I do love lemon, lime, and orange main courses, as well as side dishes and salads that have that flavor profile.

A great side dish for this Honey Lime Chicken would be this Garden Pasta Salad or this Fruit Salad.

  • Prep Time: 40m
  • Cook Time: 12m
  • Total Time: 52m
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic, (I use the kind in the jar)
  • 4 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)

Instructions

  1. Trim any fat from the chicken breasts and pound between two sheets of plastic wrap. Chicken should be about an inch thick at the thickest part.
  2. Whisk olive oil, soy sauce, honey, lime zest, lime juice, and garlic in a small bowl until combined.
  3. Put chicken breasts in a zip top bag along with marinade mixture and marinade in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or as long as possible. The longer the better. Flip it over at least once in the middle of the marinating process.
  4. Grill on outdoor grill for about 6 minutes per side or until juices run clear.

If you are unable to grill the chicken outdoors there are a couple of different ways you can cook it indoors. You can either cook this on the indoor grill just as it is, or you can skip the flattening part and start it on an indoor grill pan and then finish it off in the oven. You can also cook it in the oven on a sheet pan (I cover mine with aluminum foil for easy clean-up) at 350° for about 35 minutes, depending oh the thickness and size of the breasts.

      Sadly we will have to start cooking this indoors because it will be too cold. At least it still tastes great prepared that way, thanks!

    If I could make a lifetime supply of this chicken I would! Perfect for salads, burritos, tacos, sandwiches or just on its own… this stuff is a jack of all trades! I can’t wait to try it out!

      I know, right? We eat tons of chicken, and occasionally my daughter says, “Chicken again”? But I just keep on making it, she’ll thank me later.
