Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts I prefer to use thin chicken breasts for this recipe
  • 3 limes zested and juiced
  • 1 cup packed of cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • Cilantro sprigs and lime wedges for garnish

Instructions

  • Place the lime zest and juice, cilantro, olive oil, honey, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender. Blend for 1 minute or until sauce is smooth.
  • Divide the sauce in half. Pour half of the sauce into a resealable bag. Add the chicken and seal the bag; shake to coat the chicken in the marinade.Place the remaining sauce in the refrigerator.
  • Marinate the chicken for 1-4 hours.
  • Heat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat. Cook the chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  • After the chicken is cooked, brush the remaining sauce over the chicken. Serve any leftover sauce on the side for dipping.
  • Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro sprigs if desired.
