What’s Cookin’ – Honey Lime Marinade

We eat a lot of chicken and I love the flavor a nice marinade adds before sauteeing or grilling. One of our favorite marinades came about with a little experimentation and it’s very tasty. Every time I whisk this mixture together, hubby walks by in the kitchen and comments on how good it smells.

Honey Lime Marinade

2 limes

3 garlic cloves

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup honey

2 T. rice vinegar

1/4 tsp. salt

Zest and juice the limes into a bowl. Finely mince the garlic and add to lime juice along with with the olive oil, honey, rice vinegar and salt to taste. Put chicken breasts and marinade in a ziploc baggie and refrigerate for at least one hour, but a couple of hours is better.

This marinade would also be great for fish, like tuna steaks.

  1. I would like to present a gold medal and kiss on both cheeks to whoever invented ziploc bags. I, personally, cannot imagine life without them. Give thanks for the little things!

    • Actually, if you could see all the different ziploc bags I have, you wouldn’t think it’s such a little thing. Sandwich baggies, snack-size, quart-size, gallon-size, freezer bags. I hope whoever came up with the idea is filthy rich!!!
