  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 4-6 chicken breasts)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Pound the chicken breasts to even thickness.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, cilantro, garlic, honey, cumin, and salt.
  • Place the chicken breasts in a Tupperware or Ziplock plastic baggie and add the marinade. Be sure that the marinade covers all of the chicken.
  • Let marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • Add the chicken and cook for 6-8 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness and size of the chicken breasts. I always recommend using a meat thermometer to ensure that the middle of the chicken breast is 165 degrees F.
  • Serve sprinkled with more cilantro. Enjoy!
