Grilled Jalapeno Chicken

  • Yield 6 servings

A delicious way to prepare chicken.


6 -- chicken breasts, skinned, cut into halves
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 -- jalapenos, seeded, minced
3 -- garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Rinse the chicken and pat dry.  Arrange in a shallow nonmetallic dish.  Process the lime juice, honey, cilantro, soy sauce, jalapenos, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender until smooth.  Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade and store, covered, in the refrigerator.  Pour the remaining marinade over the chicken, turning to coat.  Marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for 8 hours, turning occasionally; drain.  Grill over medium-hot coals for 3 to 45 minutes or until cooked through, turning and basting with the reserved marinade frequently.
