Grilled Honey Lime Chicken


Serves: 4


    • 1 1/2-2 punds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • For the Marinade:
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce


  • For the Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce


    1. Combine the coconut milk, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and soy sauce in a shallow casserole dish or zip top bag. Add the chicken and allow to marinade in the refrigerator for 3-12 hours.
    2. When ready to cook, make the sauce by whisking together the vinegar, lime juice, brown sugar, honey, and soy sauce in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until thickened and sauce coats the back of a spoon, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.


  • Cook the chicken over medium 4-5 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reads 165°F.
  • During the last few minutes of cooking, brush the sauce over the chicken, repeating as desired for a thicker coating and remove from the heat.
  • Serve the chicken with the remaining sauce and sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro if desired.
