Honey-Key Lime Grilled Chicken with Grilled Zucchini

This is an old grilled chicken recipe from my parents, and it never fails to be brilliant. (The original comes from a Playboy cookbook from the 70s, of all places – I promise, it’s just recipes, not photos…)

Normally we would use regular limes here, but we had half a bag of key limes left in the fridge from the international grocery store, which we originally used to make a fabulous key lime pie.

  • 1lb chicken (breasts, thighs, strips, whatever – we used boneless thighs this time)
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 minced onion

Mix the marinade ingredients together in a jar, and shake well. Marinate the chicken while the grill heats; grill 10-12 minutes, turning often.

We quartered some zucchini lengthwise and grilled those as well, just tossed in a little salt and pepper and olive oil. We also made some quinoa with dried cranberries and pine nuts, and salad, of course, this was tasty – the honey-lime chicken always tastes like summer to me.
