This recipe for Key West chicken is perfect for summer grilling. This chicken gets its flavor from a delicious marinade that combines soy sauce, honey, lime juice, vegetable oil, and garlic. You can allow the chicken to marinade for as little as 30 minutes in the refrigerator, or if you want the fullest flavor, you can marinate overnight. I would highly recommend marinating the chicken overnight, it is well worth it. You can either grill the chicken breasts whole, or cut them into chunks and thread the pieces onto soaked wooden skewers. If you are using wooden skewers, just soak them in water for a few hours, so that they do not burn easily on the grill. These grilled chicken breasts go perfect served with a cold salad as a side dish. Enjoy.
(Makes 4 Servings)Print
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 1 teaspoon garlic (chopped)
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- In a shallow sealable container, combine soy sauce, honey, vegetable oil, lime juice, and garlic. Mix well. Place chicken breast halves into the mixture, and turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (marinate overnight for the best flavor). After the chicken is done marinating, you can cut it into chunks and thread it onto soaked wooden skewers or grill the chicken breasts whole.
- Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat. Lightly oil the grill grates.
- Remove the chicken from the marinade (discarding the marinade), and place the chicken breasts onto the grill. Grill the chicken for 6-8 minutes per side, until the chicken is fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees).
