"This is a chicken recipe that my family absolutely loves. It is chicken breast marinated in lime juice, orange juice, lemon juice, mint, and honey. It is very tender and the chicken is very moist." — CLHARTMAN

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
crushed fresh mint leaves
My family wanted a healthy BBQ for Father's Day this year so I served this dish. The only difference I made was I added the zest of the orange, lemon, and lime, as well as the juice from the fruits. The strongest citrus flavors are in the zest. My husband grilled this and while it turned out good, a few of the breasts got "blackened" from the grilling. The few chicken breasts I have left over will be baked in the oven. I'm curious to see the difference in the grilled vs. the baked. A perfect dish for summertime!
the chicken was good, but it was missing something. it just seemed very plain. a sauce would be nice, but i can't think of any that would be a good addition. any suggestions?
not very flavorful even though i marinated overnight.
This surprised me. With all the flavors of the marinade, I certainly expected it to be way more flavorful. Sprinkling salt on at the table did help, but it was still pretty bland. On the positive side, I did manage to use up the last of the fresh mint I had left - and that was the main reason for choosing the recipe.
A good twist for those of us bored with the same old chicken marinades. Made it as written and turned out great.
WONDERFUL!! I added more mint, garlic, red pepper & onions.
