Easy marinades and a grill make quick work out of summer dinners. I created this recipe because I adore the combination of lime and honey. Also, I was looking for a flavor combination which would pair well with–and make a dinner of–a light, summer salad I enjoy. This is one of those meals for which I make certain to have leftovers. Round two will be just as good!

- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- lime slices
- chopped macadamia nuts
- sesame seeds
Mix the honey, soy sauce, lime juice, and olive oil in a large zipper-top bag. Add the chicken and marinate for a few hours, overnight if possible.
Remove the chicken from the marinade, discarding marinade, and grill over medium-high heat for about 4-6 minutes per side or until golden brown and just cooked through.
Allow chicken to rest for five minutes before serving. Sprinkle with any of the above garnishes, if desired.
