Lime Jerk Grilled Chicken

Lime Jerk Grilled Chicken

I don't know about you, but BBQ season is my very favorite season. With fresh veggies ready-to-go from the garden, I love that I all I have to do is come up with a protein to complete an easy summertime meal. Insert this Lime Jerk Grilled Chicken recipe. 

Ridiculously juicy chicken made up of lime juice, garlic, cilantro, and just a hint of heat. It's my go-to summer marinade, for sure. 

Lime Jerk Grilled Chicken Recipe


  • 2lbs boneless chicken thighs or drumsticks, you choose!
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • lime zest of one lime
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle chili powder
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a Ziploc bag and shake to coat chicken evenly. Refrigerate, to let flavors merry, for a minimum of three hours. Grill and enjoy!
