This Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken is the BEST! Loaded with flavor, super juicy and perfectly grilled - it’s my go-to for every warm Summer evening!
If desired and the chicken breasts are super large like mine were, slice them in half long ways. This will ensure that 1) you get more chicken and 2) they cook faster!
Once your have your chicken breasts prepped, add them into a bowl. To the bowl, add in the lime juice, cilantro, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, cayenne and honey. Mix together.
Cover and let marinate in the fridge for 1 hour.
When the hour is almost done, start up the grill. I have a charcoal grill and I heated mine up to about 350 degrees.
Place the chicken directly onto the grill and cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway. Note that EVERY grill varies - I recommend that you have a meat thermometer to make sure your chicken is fully cooked on the inside.
Once it's done, place it on a platter, squeeze extra lime and garnish with extra cilantro if desired. Enjoy!
The chicken breasts I bought were extra large - so I sliced them in half long ways to 1) make the chicken go further aka increase the amount and 2) so it would cook faster. Highly recommend! You can also substitute chicken breasts with pre sliced chicken tenders - the cook time on the grill will probably be less though. Keep an eye on them and make sure you have a meat thermometer handy!
