Key West Chicken


 I am always on the look out for recipes. This I found in the local newspaper's weekly recipe section.  Marinated chicken on the grill is so delicious and this is definitely a different flavor than we have had before. I am a big fan of citrus flavors with chicken so I knew this would be good.
I took a large chicken breast and sliced it in half. Usually I end up with a pretty piece and another that looks pieced together. As you can tell by the photo this time was no exception. But the less pretty piece does show the marinated flavoring on the meat.


The sides for the meal were basically by chance, but they complimented the meat beautifully. We had leftover potato salad from last night that I had served with wild rice brats. There was also half an avocado from the shrimp tacos we enjoyed for lunch earlier in the day.  The flavors all tasted great together and I definitely will remember to include an avocado the next time we have this chicken.

 Ingredients: 

6 Tbs. Soy Sauce
2 Tbs. Honey
2 Tbs. Of Chopped Garlic
Juice Of 1 To 1 ½ Limes
2 Tbs. Of Oil - I used Olive Oil
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Chicken Breasts Split

Directions:

Combine first four ingredients and then slowly whisk in the oil. Add freshly ground pepper to taste. Pour over the chicken and allow to sit in the refrigerator for an hour or so.  I used an 8x8 pan, but a Ziploc bag also works very well to marinate meat.

Place the chicken on a hot grill and pour marinade over the meat. Grill until chicken is cooked through.
