Beer brings out the fresh citrusy flavor of lemon. Lime juice would work just as well. Double this easy recipe to enjoy zesty chicken strips over mixed salad greens, in warm corn tortillas with salsa, or as the basis of a cool chicken salad.
1 cup lager beer (such as Budweiser)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
How to Make It
Combine first 10 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken; seal and marinate in refrigerator 3 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove the chicken from bag; discard marinade.
Prepare grill to medium-high.
Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until done.
I loved this recipe and will absolutely make it again! I actually subbed lime juice for the lemon, upped the soy and honey just a bit and think it turned out fantastic!! I paired this with a rice recipe that makes Chipotle's rice. The recipe has lime juice in it so that was a good match. Then I cut up a fresh pineapple, tossed the spears in lime juice, grilled them and topped them with lime zest and a drizzle of honey. The lime through the whole meal tied everything together and was subtle enough not to over power. Super meal!
I've made this twice now (once I used whole breasts and once I made kebabs) for dinner parties and everyone, I mean everyone, raved about it. My kids say it's the best chicken they've ever had. It has a fresh taste that's perfect for summer grilling and pairs perfectly with any side dishes you can imagine.
We made this dish today and we just loved it. Even the kids loved it! We used Budweiser Lime and lime juice instead of lemon. The chicken was so moist and flavorful. We paired it with some veggie kebobs (peppers, onions, and squash). Delicious. Adding it to our recipe book.
Delicious. The only addition i should of done when i used this recipe is to cut/slice the chicken to let it marinade inside as well. I grilled the chicken, only to find out it needed a little bit of flavor from the inside out. But, it is a great recipe, without a doubt.
