Honey Lime Chicken

I finally found a lime chicken recipe that I like! I saw one on the Kraft recipe blog and adapted it to what I was looking for. It turned out great. We have been lucky to have warm days already and so I was ready for something springy and light and this fits the bill.

adapted from Kraftrecipes.com

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
juice (about 1/4 cup) and zest (about 2-3 tsp.) of 2 limes
1/4 cup honey
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
1/4 tsp. pepper

Trim chicken breasts and pat dry with paper towels. In a small bowl, whisk the juice and zest of both limes, honey, mustard, soy sauce, garlic and pepper. Place chicken breasts in a gallon size Ziploc and pour marinade over. Seal and marinate in refrigerator for 1-4 hours.

Preheat grill for med-high heat.* Grill breasts about 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. For more intense flavor, while chicken is grilling, pour remaining marinade in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened. Brush over grilled chicken breasts before serving.

*(If you don't have a grill, you can try broiling the chicken for 15 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time.)
