  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. When grill is ready, brush the grate lightly with oil.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix together the lime juice, beer, honey, cilantro, salt and pepper. Place chicken into the sauce, cover, and marinate for about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove chicken breasts from marinade, and place on the grill. Grill for about 8 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear, and the internal temperature of the meat has reached 175 degrees F (80 degrees C). Discard leftover marinade.

This had no discernible smell or taste other than the fresh cilantro I used. I marinated it for 1 hour and then added ginger and garlic in the hopes of giving it some added 'zing', but it just ...

This was very good... I marinaded the chicken overnight with some garlic cloves, the leftover limes, and cayanne pepper and used it to make soft shell tacos - DELICIOUS!

This was really bland.

I'm giving it a 5 because it was so easy! I put it together in the a.m., traveled to a campsite, and we grilled it hours later. True, I'll play with some different spices, but the chicken was so...

My family and I all thought this was very tasty. It is a mild flavor, but we grilled boneless skinless chicken breasts using this method (and I even didn't have the cilantro) and adding garlic ...

Boring, Boring. You would be better off putting the lime in the beer and drinking it while using the chicken in another recipe.

This recipe was OK. I think it should have been tangier.

Very juicy & mild flavored. Next time we make this I'll try what was suggested in other reviews - add crushed garlic & cayenne pepper.

I thought it was quite tasty, but my family thought it had too much ale flavor. One member wouldn't eat it all. so I had to downgrade to a three star.
