Servings 5


  • 5 chicken thighs boned
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/2-1 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic I sadly had no fresh on hand & had to use that jarred stuff, so I'm not sure how many cloves it would be
  • 1 Tablespoon local honey
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt blend


  • In a zip-top bag, combine the lime juice, garlic, honey, olive oil, and seasoned salt. Add the cilantro (more if you're a big fan of it, less if you're not) and mix it up. Drop the chicken thighs into the marinade and zip the bag closed. Squish the chicken around in the bag to coat all the pieces. Pop the bag in the fridge, rotating it periodically. You can marinate as little as 30 minutes, but I went with 24 hours for better flavor.
  • When you're ready to cook, preheat your grill. Grill at around 350 degrees (medium-low heat) for 4-6 minutes per side (flipping only once), or until juices run clear and it's no longer pink inside the chicken.
