Honey, soy sauce and lime juice combine to make a super simple marinade that is the best I have found for chicken. You can bbq after 30 minutes but it's better if left longer.
Altered ingredient amounts. Awesome!! I made this chicken last night on the grill, and it left me wanting more! After reading some of the reviews I did tweak this to my liking. I prepared the marinade the night before. I first started with 1 batch, and realizing how little it makes, so I decided to double the recipe. I used all together 3 tbsp soy sauce, doubling calls for 6, so I cut in half, about 3 tbsp of honey, 2 tbsp oil, juice from 2 fresh limes(squeezed dry), 2 tsp of garlic, and chicken(I used chicken tenders). Lowering the soy sauce and upping the honey and lime juice is key. I can see how the soy could become a prominent flavor. I marinated over night, turning once. The next day I grilled on low, and the chicken came out tender, juicy, and full of flavor. The flavor was very well blended. You could taste just a hint of everything. My family loved this. There were no leftovers disappointingly. The next time I will be sure to make a little extra marinade and set it aside. This would be great to have on hand at dinner for an extra kick of flavor and juices. Also, I served this with the oven roasted potatoes from this site, and asparagus (which we put on the grill with the chicken). I topped everything off with some fresh parmesan and romano cheese. - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. This was a lovely recipe. I did what lynjoymac suggested and added coriander and chilli to the recipe. I cut up the chicken, stuck it in the marinade then left it for a couple of hours. I then used it in a stir fry with mushrooms, snowpeas and quinoa. It was beautiful. - 16 Nov 2009
