I love that this lime and honey chicken was so easy and flavorful. Perfect for a summer/early fall BBQ, the lime, honey and cayenne pepper compliment each other brilliantly. The chicken was so moist, and full of flavor in each bite. Yup, it' going on my list of favorites! The recipe was featured in Sunset Magazine but found it at The Enchanted Cook.

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (2 limes), plus the zest of both limes
2 Tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1.5 pounds of chicken
In a large zip top plastic bag combine all of the ingredients except the chicken. Seal bag completely and mix well. Add chicken to bag, turn to coat and reseal. Place in refrigerator overnight or for several hours.
Heat grill (either outdoor grill, or indoor grill pan) to medium high. Grill chicken for approximately 6-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. If you're using fairly thin chicken breasts, cut time down.
