This chicken tastes great with a romaine salad and a side of corn, or sliced and turned into tacos with rice and beans.
3 tablespoons honey, divided
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind
How to Make It
Combine 2 tablespoons honey and next 7 ingredients (through garlic) in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken; seal bag. Marinate in refrigerator overnight, turning occasionally.
Preheat grill to high heat.
Combine remaining 1 tablespoon honey and lime rind. Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 5 minutes on each side, basting with reserved honey mixture during last 2 minutes of cooking time. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.
