One of the easiest things to do for dinner in the summertime is to throw some chicken on the grill!
It’s even tastier if you’ve marinated it overnight. This is a great recipe for an evening after a long Monday. I make it up on Sunday afternoon and leave it in the refrigerator until I need to grill it on Monday night. The only prep work you have to do on Monday is throw together a few side dishes (hello, baked potatoes and salad).
The lime juice is a wonderful acidic touch to the sweetness of the honey in this dish. I love adding heat to sweet, so I added the Sriracha to the marinade. You don’t have to include it, but I think it adds a depth of flavor that really complements the chicken.
Brookshire’s Combo Packs of chicken are on sale this week. Since this recipe doesn’t call for a specific piece of chicken, it’s perfect and definitely will please everyone in your family. Bone-in chicken is great for the grill because the bones help keep the juices in the meat somehow. Maybe it’s magic or maybe it’s the marinade, but it’s delicious anyway.
