Cilantro Lime Chicken

by Mindy on May 24, 2012

It’s grilling time!  Of course we grill all winter in parkas, but there is just something about lifting the chicken off the grill and then staying outside that is nothing short of blissful.  Oh, and this grilled chicken is perfect for grilling out.  Healthy, pretty, and exploding with summer flavors!  The lime is refreshing.  The honey adds just enough sweetness.  The jalapeno kicks up the flavor, but isn’t really spicy  (my 18 month old gobbled it down).  And the cilantro provides a zesty finish to seal the deal.
