Key West Grilled Chicken

Key West Grilled Chicken

The wonderful part about this recipe is that it doesn't take long for the meat to marinate, which means it's a quick delicious throw together meal during the busy work week. It's a versatile chicken recipe- the flavors of honey and lime are complemented well with a touch of garlic and cilantro.

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or Coconut Aminos
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. Red Bell Pepper, Finely Chopped
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves
In a shallow bowl combine soy sauce, honey, vegetable oil, lime juice, garlic, bell pepper and cilantro, mixing well.

For Grilled Breasts
  • Place chicken breast halves into the mixture, and turn to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
For Grilled Kebabs (or Skewers)
  • Cut the chicken into 1-2″ cubes, skewer onto bamboo sticks that have been soaked in water for 5 minutes, and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Grill the marinated meats over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear. For the skewers, grill about 3 minutes per side, turning occasionally.
  • Serve with fresh salad, steamed veggies, grilled potato wedges or any of your favorite sides.

For Grilled Shrimp:
  • For Key West grilled shrimp, substitute 2 pounds of fresh jumbo shrimp for the chicken. The shrimp will take 2-5 minutes to grill depending on the size. Rule of thumb- when the shrimp looks like the letter “C” it’s done. If it looks like an “L”, it’s still raw/rare, and if it looks like an “O”- it’s overdone!
