Cynthia Betancourt

"A lime-tarragon marinade for juicy flavorful chicken pieces - moist and delicious. I like to marinate the pieces and cook them on the grill for a nice summer meal."

  1. Place olive oil, lime juice, onion, tarragon, salt, and hot sauce into a large, resealable plastic bag; shake to mix. Add chicken thighs, coat with marinade, squeeze out air, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate. Remove chicken from marinade, and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill chicken for about 30 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center. Chicken thighs don't dry out easily, so don't be afraid to cook them a bit longer if needed.

This was great for chicken kabobs. I used half the amount of olive oil, 1 Tbsp. of dried minced onion, Frank's red hot, and let this marinate 24 hours.

We made this on our new George Foreman grill as it is too cold outside. Made per recipe and it came out great. The lime juice made it. Thanks!

This was a big hit at a recent pot-luck. I doubled the recipe, but my husband thought that the oil didn't need to be doubled since it flared up on the grill. I used organic chicken thighs, and m...

We really liked the flavor of this chicken. I think using fresh lime juice is the key. I'm also thinking next time I make it I just might use fresh tarragon. The smell of this dish was fantas...

This recipe was good baked too. It had a great taste to it. I wasn't really into tarragon before, but this recipe made me a fan of it.

Really enjoyed this recipe exactly as is. Was tempted to add garlic but was glad I didn't. Lime/tarragon combo is a unique delicious flavour. Used freshly squeezed lime juice, don't know if it ...

This was good but as usual I didnt have enough time to marinade this as long as I should have... Everyone liked it still!

Great chicken dish! I used boneless, skinless thighs and will try it with boneless, skinless breasts next time. I may add a bit of chopped garlic to the marinade but otherwise, I wouldn't chan...
