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.

  1. Place the chicken into a large bowl, and pour in the lemon juice, lime juice and orange juice. Sprinkle the mint leaves over, and drizzle with honey. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat a grill for medium heat. When the grill is hot, lightly brush the grate with oil.
  3. Place the chicken onto the preheated grill, and discard the marinade. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until no longer pink and juices run clear.

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.
