Honey Lime Grilled Chicken

Wow!!!  This is a extremely simple and delicious marinade!  I grilled the chicken on the George Foreman (we don't own a real grill, yet) and cut it up to serve over a salad.  Give this marinade a try, you won't use the bottled stuff ever again :).

6 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 Tbsp honey
Juice of 2 limes (~4 Tbsp lime juice)
3 Tbsp orange juice
1 tsp salt (Omit if using regular sodium soy sauce)
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1-1/2 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced (I didn't use b/c didn't have)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp sesame seeds (I didn't use b/c didn't have)
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  1. 12-24 hours prior to cooking, mix all ingredients together in a bowl or large ziplock bag.  Then place into the refridgerator.
  2. 1 hour prior to cooking remove chicken from marinade set aside.
  3. Heat grill and cook chicken from about 5-8 minutes on each side.
  4. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes then slice and serve.
