Key West Grilled Chicken

We love to grill at our house, so when I found this recipe in one of my school cook books from many years ago, I had to make it. It's something a little different with a hint of lime, sweetness of the honey and salty from the soy sauce. This Key West Grilled Chicken paired with white rice and salsa black beans was a nice dinner that our whole family enjoyed. I look forward to making it again. That's another perk of this recipe. Just let it marinate and then put it on the grill! I like easy! Enjoy!

Key West Grilled Chicken
(adapted by Missy)
4 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. lime juice
4 chicken breasts or 8 chicken tenderloins thawed,not frozen(I use tenderloins)

Mix together all ingredients except chicken to make marinade. Put chicken into a casserole dish and pour marinade over chicken. Turn chicken to coat with marinade.Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate for at least 1 hr.(I prefer to marinate it all day).Can also marinate in gallon size Ziploc bag. Grill chicken on outdoor or indoor grill.

I'm sharing this recipe today for Full Plate Thursday at Miz Helen's Country Cottage. Stop by and take a look!
