Recipe: Grilled Honey Lime Chicken! | Shoreline Moms

Let’s face it, grilling is just the easiest way to prepare meals during this time of year… and avoid a big clean up! So, we are always excited to try a new recipe to switch things up! Jo Keohane, the mom of three and recipe developer behind The Family Food Kitchen is sharing a recipe for Grilled Honey Lime Chicken Thighs that we can’t wait to add to the menu!


  • 2 lbs Chicken Thighs – boneless & skinless
  • 2 Limes – juice only
  • 4 cloves Garlic – peeled
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • Pinch Ground Black Pepper


1.  Whisk together the lime, garlic, honey, soy sauce, salt and pepper in a small bowl with a fork.
2.  Place the chicken in a wide flat bowl or lasagne pan and pour the marinade over. Mix it around until evenly coated.
3.  Cover and marinade in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight so it really gets into the chicken. Stir occasionally.
4.  Pre-heat the grill to medium high. Remove the garlic cloves and grill chicken over a medium hot grill for 5 -6 minutes on each side, until it is is cooked through, the juices run clear and/or or an instant read thermometer registers 165ºF/75ºC when inserted into the thickest part of the thigh.
5.  Let chicken rest, covered in foil, for around 10 minutes before serving.
