Grilled Key Lime Chicken

We absolutely love BBQ’s at our house in the summertime!  As soon as I made this it became an instant favorite!  The marinade is amazing and it has the perfect hint of lime in it.  This is the perfect summer dish and the flavor is incredible.  It was grilled to perfection and the chicken was so juicy and tender.  Even my picky of all pickiest 5 year old loved this!  So I am pretty sure your family will love this key lime chicken too! 🙂

    We made this last night and really enjoyed it. I had chicken tenderloins on hand and grilled those, instead of cubing the chicken and skewering it. I let it marinate for 6ish hours and the chicken had a nice taste to it.
