It’s simply magic when well marinated chicken meets a hot grill. The main components of a good marinade are acid, oil and flavor. This recipe contains all three plus a bonus from the honey to caramelize the chicken breasts.
- Lime juice to tenderize the chicken
- Olive oil to keep the breast moist and juicy and from sticking to the grill
- Lime zest, ginger, cilantro, and cayenne pepper add flavor
- Honey adds sweetness and helps with great grill marks
