Honey + Lime + Cilantro = one of my favorite flavor combinations. Something about the sweet honey and tangy lime plus the cilantro infuses this chicken with such amazing flavor. I love cilantro! It is one of my favorite herbs to cook and garnish with.
This marinade comes together quickly and I love to marinade for a few hours so the chicken can soak up the delicious flavor. I am seriously all about the quick and easy BBQ dishes lately.
Since the weeks are starting to get so busy and school is almost over this chicken was a delicious meal that my entire family loved. After a busy day we love to just spend time in the backyard while we BBQ. It was fun to enjoy the sun after a long week of rain.
