"When I bought a bottle of Key Lime juice on vacation in Florida, I wondered what I would do with it... Now this recipe is a staple in our kitchen! I hope you enjoy it too! The longer you marinate, the better the sweet-sour combo gets!" — ANISSA925

key lime juice
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
I used regular lime juice and marinated it for 2 hours... we really liked the flavor, but will definitely marinate it overnight next time to strengthen the taste.
I marinated it for 10 hours because I just didn't think you could get the most out of this dish with only marinating meat for 30 min. Even the 10 hours didn't help infuse the chicken with real flavor. The proportion of honey to lime was off and the chicken was so bland.
I really liked this recipe. It was simple and super easy to make. The trick is to marinate the chicken for at least an hour or two. The key lime taste is great, subtle & delicious.

Great recipe! I didn't have any key lime juice, so I ended up using regular lime juice...and then it turned out that I didn't have enough of that, so I ended up subbing lemon juice for the remainder. :P Even so, the chicken came out moist, tender, and juicy, with a great lime/honey flavor. I marinated the chicken overnight, and then grilled it for lunch today. It was wonderful, and my family really enjoyed it. Plus, it was super easy and quick to put together. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!!!
I let it marinate overnight so the flavor really penetrated the chicken and it was very moist but for some reason the lime juice and honey didn't taste right together to me. I thought the key lime juice was way too tart for this, maybe regular lime juice or lemon juice.
Great marinade! I will definitely keep this recipe. I couldn't access my grill due to a sudden storm, so I browned the chicken in some olive oil on the stove.
So this was okay. It is important to use Key West Lime Juice, and not regular lime juice. The Key West is stronger and will help with the flavor. I took leftovers, shredded and it made a great chicken salad. Will I make this again, No. Do I think you should try it, Yes.
I marinated this longer overnight. The flavor was good but chicken was tough possibly from the lime juice. I probably wont make this again.
