Grilled Honey Lime Cilantro Chicken

Honey + Lime + Cilantro = one of my favorite flavor combinations.  Something about the sweet honey and tangy lime plus the cilantro infuses this chicken with such amazing flavor.   I love cilantro!  It is one of my favorite herbs to cook and garnish with.

This marinade comes together quickly and I love to marinade for a few hours so the chicken can soak up the delicious flavor.  I am seriously all about the quick and easy BBQ dishes lately.

Since the weeks are starting to get so busy and school is almost over this chicken was a delicious meal that my entire family loved.  After a busy day we love to just spend time in the backyard while we BBQ.  It was fun to enjoy the sun after a long week of rain.

I always call a meal a success when the entire family including the picky eater devours it.  We all loved this chicken so much and the flavor is awesome!

Definitely grill it up this summer with your family!  You will not regret it!

    Didn’t have cilantro on hand, but made it anyway and the flavor was amazing! Great recipe and definitely bookmarking for future use 🙂

  5. It was a quick and easy meal! Hubby and I also made the Thai Barbeque Chicken: http://therecipecritic.com/2016/07/thai-barbecue-chicken/

    I used bone-in, skin on thighs and they turned out quite juicy.

    They were not as dark as yours. I used a Japanese soy sauce, maybe I should have used a dark soy sauce?

    I also found the flavour a bit light. They were only marinated for 3 hours, but maybe it would have a stronger flavour if I left them overnight.

    All in all a solid recipe I’m happy to make again.

    Thanks!
