I am always on the lookout for new grilling recipes, because I feel like I fall into the same routine of only preparing the same marinades.

And trust me, this chicken is delicious.

This Chipotle Lime Chicken is so easy to make, and you probably already have most all the ingredients. Such a healthy meal, with hardly any preparation. So fire up that grill and try this chicken that will change your life.

It’s full of protein, and comes together in a matter of minutes.

The key to grilling juicy chicken

Grilling chicken can be tricky. I don’t think there is anyone more scared of getting food poisoning than me. When I grill the chicken at our house, it is grilled to a crisp, and needs a lot of sauce.

My husband taught me two words that have stuck with me through the years. They are “low and slow”.

When you are grilling chicken, cook it on low, and let them cook with time. Even if it takes an extra 7 minutes, it will be worth it for juicy and tender chicken.

I also recommend investing in a food thermometer, they are only a few dollars, and when the middle of your chicken reaches 165 degrees, you know the chicken is done and juicy.

    Haven't tried this recipe but sounds good. My comment is in the list of ingredients it say 2 lemons for garnish and extra zest but at the end of directions it states "serve with fresh lime and enjoy". Which is it -lemon or lime?

  2. Marvie says:

    I sure it was a typo and it meant limes (Hence: the name of the recipe) but use your imagination. Use what you prefer or have on hand, you don't have be precise in a recipe like this.

  3. Cyd says:

    Thanks for catching that Susan. We have gone in and fixed the recipe. Have a great week!

  4. Kaleigh says:
