Hey all! Just thought I'd do a quick post on my latest Pinterest recipe find. Now that spring is here, everyone I'm sure are whipping out their grills. Well, here is a great little marinade for chicken you plan to barbecue. Simple and easy-to find ingredients!
I threw mine over rice-and-peas with a small salad on the side. Our grill ran out of gas mid-grilling, so I finished mine up in the oven--hence it not being as charred as I would like. Oh, and don't feel like you HAVE to make kabobs--but I suggest you do as you get the flavor of the marinade in every bite-sized piece!
Key West Grilled Chicken
* 3 tablespoons soy sauce
* 2 Tbs. honey
* 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
* Juice of 1 Lime
* 1 teaspoon minced garlic
* 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
In a small bowl combine soy sauce, honey, vegetable oil, lime juice, and garlic.
If you want to have grilled breasts, Place chicken breast halves into the mixture, and turn to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes. If you prefer kebabs, as are pictured, cut the chicken into large chunks, skewer onto bamboo sticks that have been soaked in water for 5 minutes, and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
For a slightly zestier version, add a teaspoon of Freshly Chopped cilantro to the marinade.
Grill on medium high heat for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear. Serve with fresh salad, steamed veggies, baked potato or any of your favorite sides. For variation, try marinating shrimp, (which will take 2-4 minutes to grill in all!)
Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!
