Honey Lime Chicken

I found this recipe on and I’d have to say it was pretty delicious! It was a perfect meal on a summer night. The chicken was sweet, light, and just a little tangy.

So, let’s get to the recipe!

I doubled this recipe since my family is larger than 4 people.

Ingredients: Serves 4


  1. In a large resealable bag, combine the wine or chicken broth, honey, lime juice and ginger and the chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2 hours, turning once.
  2. Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade. Combine the garlic powder, salt and pepper; sprinkle on the chicken.
  3. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 6-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
  4. You could also bake this in the oven at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. (I grilled)

 Instead of dumping out all the marinade, I decided to use it to brush on both sides of the chicken while it was grilling.

You can pair this dish with GAPS-friendly sides, like asparagus and cucuber and tomato salad

Or you can pair it with a gluten-free grain like white rice

Either way, this recipe tastes great! This will definitly be one of my go-to chicken recipes!

Enjoy! 🙂

    I would never have thought to put honey and lime together. I am always looking for new ways to season chicken. This sounds delicious. Can’t wait to make it for my family. Thanks!
