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.

Directions

  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.

The whole family enjoyed this recipe. I combined everything in a freezer bag and froze it. When I was ready to grill, I removed it from the freezer the night before to thaw. I added some of the juice from the marinade to my rice cooker for a flavorful rice dish.

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!
