Lime Thyme Chicken

Need another recipe idea for an easy grilling marinade? Here you go....

Lime Thyme Chicken

Lime Thyme Chicken

2 tbsp. lime zest
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts
2-3 tbsp. melted butter
sliced avocados

Combine the lime zest, lime juice, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper in a large zipper-lock plastic bag. Seal the bag and shake well to blend. Place the chicken in the bag with the marinade, pressing out excess air and sealing once more. Refrigerate and let marinate for 2 hours.

Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade and place on grill, reserving the leftover marinade. Brush the top of each piece of chicken with melted butter.

Grill chicken until juices run clear. Halfway through grilling, pour/brush the remaining marinade over the chicken. Once fully cooked, cover loosely with foil and let rest 10 minutes before serving. Transfer to a serving platter, garnish with slice avocados and serve.

Sprinkle a bit of lime on top of your avocados as well....great flavor of chicken with the creamy avocado. YUM!
