Key West Chicken

You know me...always on the lookout for a new marinade! Chicken always needs a little something to give it some depth, and this marinade had a nice sweet/salty/citrus-y thing going on that made it the perfect light flavor when charred on the grill. If you're sick of your plain old marinated in italian dressing chicken, this marinade is for you...

3 T soy sauce
2 T honey
1 T vegetable oil (I used olive oil as it's more heart healthy)
juice of 1 lime
1 t minced garlic
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

In a small bowl, combine the marinade ingredients and then pour over chicken in a container to sit overnight. For a slightly zestier option, add 2 T of fresh cilantro chopped up like I did.

Grill as you would a normal chicken breast and prepare to have your mind blown. This would also be a great marinade for shrimp, if you ask me....
