Citrus Marinated Grilled Chicken

I whipped this dish up on the spur of the moment recently and was really pleased with the way it turned out. The husband commented that it has just the right amount of lime and garlic, with none of the flavors overwhelming the overall dish.
I am excited to make this chicken again soon, especially with the weather nice enough to grill every day. We served it with avocado slices and gussied up instant potatos (gasp!).

Printable Recipe


5-6 small boneless, skinless chicken thighs
3 limes
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 green onion, diced (white and green parts)
dash salt
1-2 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
dash garlic salt
1 green onion, green part only, diced for garnish

Squeeze the lime juice in a medium bowl. Mix in the garlic, onion, salt, pepper, chili powder, and garlic salt. Add the chicken to the marinade; turn the chicken over a few times to ensure it is completely covered by the marinade.

Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for an hour.

Heat a charcoal grill (a grill pan would work too, but you'll lose the grill flavor). Once the coals are ready, place the chicken on the grill and cover for 3-4 minutes. Turn the chicken over and finish grilling until the meat reaches 165 degrees.

Plate and sprinkle with the diced green onions.
