Perfectly grilled tender and juicy chicken marinated in a honey lime cilantro marinade. The flavor of this chicken is incredible!
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!
