Key West Grilled Chicken

key west grilled chicken (1 of 2)

This Key West Grilled Chicken is a very simple recipe with a great soy-lime flavor. We had friends over for lunch, so I prepared the chicken the night before and grilled it when they arrived. They can also be prepared in skewer form. Cut the chicken breasts into 1 1/2 inch chunks before marinating and place on skewers before grilling. Serve with rice and garnish with limes and cilantro. The rice in the photo is from Adora’s Box. It is a Filipino dish called Paprika (Java) Rice.

Prep Time: 40 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

4 servings

Key West Grilled Chicken


3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

juice from 1 lime

1 teaspoon chopped garlic

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

In a rimmed pan (I used an 8x8 baking dish), whisk together soy sauce, honey, oil, lime juice, and garlic. Add the chicken breasts in a single layer, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to overnight.

Heat grill to high heat and lightly grease. Remove chicken from marinade and grill until cooked through, 6-8 minutes per side.

    Hi there, would you give permission for me to use a picture on my own site. I am building up my recipes pages for Florida Keys recipes and this looks like a good one to have?
