Grilled Chili Lime Chicken

Grilled Chili Lime Chicken is made with tender and juicy grilled chicken with the best chili lime marinade!  This is one that your family will love! 

Hey hey it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb here to share one of my very favorite go-to weeknight dinner recipes with you. Grilled chicken is a staple in my house, all year round but especially in the Spring and Summer time, and now that the weather has been warming up, I’ve been using my grill several times a week in celebration.

This simple chili lime marinade can work its magic in as little as a half hour but if you think ahead, it’s 10 times better if you can let it hang out in the fridge for a few hours. Serve it up with a side salad or your favorite Spring veggies and kick off grilling season with this tasty chili lime grilled chicken!

    Tried this last night, but baked it in the oven instead and then broiled it to finish it off. It was fantastic! I only marinated it for 30 mins, and it was full of flavor! I will certainly be making this again!

    • That is SO good to hear! Thanks for sharing! I am so happy it turned out and you all loved it!
