Grilling season is back! And you need this honey lime marinade in your grilling rotation. It is the perfect combination of sweet and tangy, and creates a gorgeously juicy and flavorful chicken. We used it on chicken tenderloins (I’ve actually never had these before, but they were on sale and I love that they are slightly smaller than a standard breast. Better for portion control!). It is definitely in top place for chicken marinades and I am so looking forward to grilling again.

We served these with some delicious green beans, a recipe for which I’ll be sharing soon. We also partnered them with rice, making this a pretty darn healthy meal, and really, genuinely good. I don’t know why I’m always surprised when something is both good for me and yummy, but the more I try to cook healthy, the more I find that they’re not mutually exclusive 🙂

Love this marinade! I bet it would be great for a stir fry sauce too!
