Honey Lime Chicken

Honey Lime Chicken Skewers

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1" pieces
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 TBS honey
1 TBS vegetable oil
Juice of 1 lime
2 tsp hot chili sauce, such as Sriracha sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 TBS cilantro (or parsley), chopped
3-4 skewers (metal or wooden)


In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, oil, lime juice, hot chili sauce, garlic and cilantro. Stir to combine.

In a large gallon sized plastic zipper bag, add the chicken pieces to the bag along with the marinade. Zip the bag closed, removing the air from the bag as you close it. Gently knead the marinade and chicken together until chicken is coated completely.

Place the marinating chicken in the refrigerator for 1-3 hours.

Remove the chicken from the bag, discard any marinade left in the bag. Thread 8 to 9 pieces of chicken onto each skewer. (If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 15 minutes prior to skewering the chicken.)

Grill over medium heat, 7 to 8 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked.

Serve with a fresh garden salad and wedges of lime.

Serves 3-4
