Honey Lime Chicken is tangy, sweet, and delicious.
Honey Lime Chicken 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. This is great 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. 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. There are also many side dishes and salads that I love that have that flavor profile.
Honey Lime Chicken
- 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 a jar
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

- 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.
- Whisk olive oil, soy sauce, honey, lime zest, lime juice, and garlic in a small bowl until combined.
- 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.
- 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.
