Honey-Lime Chicken

Take advantage of a sunny day to try out the tasty freshness of this grilled chicken. It is great on its own, atop a green salad, or even paired with Cilantro-Lime Rice.

1-2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts 

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup fresh lime juice (2 limes), plus zest
2 T. honey
½ tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

In a large, resealable plastic bag combine all marinade ingredients; seal the bag and shake to combine. Add the chicken to the bag; shake to coat and refrigerate overnight or at least 3 hours.

Preheat grill over medium heat. Grill chicken for 5-7 minutes per side, until cooked through. Serve with Cilantro-Lime Rice.
