Lime Honey Chicken
Taking a moment to pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness will ensure faster, more even cooking and a juicier finished product. Many grocery stores and markets will do this if you ask.


  • 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

Optional garnishes

  • lime slices
  • scallions
  • basil
  • cilantro
  • mint
  • chopped macadamia nuts
  • sesame seeds


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Allow chicken to rest for five minutes before serving. Sprinkle with any of the above garnishes, if desired.
