Key West Grilled Chicken

Here is an easy and tasty summer dinner - Key West Grilled Chicken.  The marinade is easy to put together and you can cut up boneless chicken pieces and make kabobs, or do chicken breast halves. The key to this Key West chicken (ha ha) is to give it plenty of time to marinade so you get the full flavor.

Key West Grilled Chicken
recipe from GroceryBudget101
Ingredients:
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
juice of one lime
1 clove fresh garlic, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Directions:
In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine the soy sauce, honey, vegetable oil, lime juice, garlic and salt.
If making kabobs, cut up chicken into large chunks.
Place chicken in a large ziplock bag.
Add marinade and place in fridge for at least 4 hours.  You can do this overnight if you want.
Skewer the marinaded chicken pieces on metal skewers.  If using wooden skewers, you need to soak them for about 20 minutes first.
I like to do this step on a baking sheet.  It helps contain the mess and makes it easy to transport to the grill outside.
Preheat grill to medium high heat, and once hot, put your skewers on.
Grill for about 4 minutes on each side, until cooked through.  For chicken breast halves you will need to grill for about 5-6 minutes on each side.
Once cooked remove from grill (I use tongs since those metal ends are HOT!).
Serve on a platter (or on the skewers if you want) and garnish with cilantro (or parsley if you are not a cilantro fan like me).  Squeeze a little extra lime juice over the top if desired.
Delish.  Love summer dinners.  Add a green salad and rice for a complete meal.

Enjoy!
