Honey Lime Chicken Marinade

Juice of 2 limes
4 Tbs. Honey
1 tsp. cumin
3 T. Cilantro, finely chopped
4 T. olive oil
Chicken breasts

Squeeze the juice from the two limes (I like to pop my limes in the microwave for about 20 seconds, and then roll them on the counter using slight pressure to make them a little more juicy). Marinate over night. Grill. Enjoy!

*We tried the original recipe below, but we didn't make them exactly like the recipe calls for. We added sliced melted Swiss cheese, mayo, tomato, lettuce, and mustard. I felt it really lacked flavor this way. Next time I think we'll either make it as a marinade (which was DELISH) or we'll make it the way suggested. can make.....

Home lime chicken sandwiches

Original Recipe from The Recipe Shoebox

The juice of one lime
2 Tbs. honey
1 tsp. cumin
3 Tbs. cilantro, finely chopped
2 Tbs. olive oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I sliced the chicken breasts in half)
1 tsp. steak seasoning blend (or salt and pepper to taste)
4 crusty rolls, split (we used hamburger buns we had on hand, I'm sure the other rolls would be much better)

Tomato, sliced
Red onion, sliced
Avocado, sliced
1 cup salsa

Combine lime juice, honey, cumin, cilantro, and olive oil in a small bowl to make marinade. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning blend or salt and pepper. Coat chicken in marinade and set aside for 10 minutes.
Grill chicken for 6-7 minutes on each side (or pan fry over medium high heat in a large nonstick skillet, uncovered, six minutes per side.
Slice grilled chicken on an angle and pile on roll bottoms. Top with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and sliced avocado. Spread salsa on roll tops.
