honey lime chicken kebobs

I found this recipe via Pinterest recently and had to give it a try! I tweaked it a bit and my family was gobbling it up! Its a great sweet and spicy marinade that is perfect for summer. Obviously, you don’t have to make kebobs – my kids just love anything on a stick! I served it with oven roasted veggies to use up what we had from the farmer’s market.

Honey-Lime Chicken Kebobs

3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
juice of one lime (3 tbsp lime juice)
1/4 cup chopped onion
4 garlic cloves, minced
red pepper flakes, to taste (We used about a teaspoon)
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 tablespoon fresh cilantro



  1. In a small bowl, combine your ingredients, expect the cilantro. Whisk thoroughly.
  2. Cut chicken breasts into large chunks.
  3. Pour marinade over chicken breasts and turn to coat. Cover and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour, better if all day or overnight.
  4. Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 15 minutes, then thread skewers with chicken.
  5. Grill on medium high heat for 6 to 8 minutes per side, until juices run clear.

    I used this on salmon tonight and it was very tasty, especially with the cilantro. I didn’t have enough lime juice so next time I think it will be even better.
