Honey Lime Grilled Chicken

grilled chicken with honey-lime marinade

This marinade is a keeper for sure! It was so easy and the chicken stayed moist with a lot of lime flavor after being cooked. It would be great for grilled chicken tacos. Hmm…I’ll have to get right on that!


4 large (or 6 small) chicken breasts

1/2 cup lime juice

1/4 cup olive oil

2 TBSP honey

2 TBSP minced garlic

1 tsp dried thyme

1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a gallon size zipper bag.
  2. Shake well to mix.
  3. Refrigerate at least 45 minutes to a few hours before cooking.
  4. Grill chicken over medium low heat until done, at least 165°F using a digital meat thermometer.

    • I just made a salad the night I grilled it. Normally, I would do rice pilaf or baked potatoes – something starchy. I used the leftovers today in a chicken-avocado-tomato sandwich. YUM!


  1. Tried the honey lime chicken and it was delicious and easy!!! Thank you. Had it with roasted corn on the cob and spicy re-fried


    • Those sound like great sides to go along with the honey lime chicken! Glad you enjoyed it. It’s been a hit at our house too!
