How to Make Minty Lime Chicken

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine the mint, honey and lime juice in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Use toothpicks to keep the chicken thighs in neat shapes and add the chicken to the marinade, turning to coat evenly.
  • 2Leave the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes, longer if possible. Cook the chicken on a preheat moderately hot grill or broiler, turning frequently and basting with marinade.
  • 3The chicken is cooked if the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced with a skewer. Meanwhile, mix together the sauce ingredients. Remove the toothpicks and serve the chicken with a salad and the sauce for dipping or pouring.
