    Honey lime salad dressing is always my favorite on restaurant salads…but on chicken with some sriracha? Double yum! Love this easy meal for the Summer Tessa! Pinned 🙂

    OMG…I was fortunate enough to have the ingredients on hand – made it for dinner tonight – absolutely delish!! If you don’t like things spicy just back off on the Srirachi sauce. I think I’ll add pineapple rice to go with it next time. It will burn easily due to the honey, so spray down the grill grate & keep an eye on it, it turned out just like the picture & only took 10 min to prepare marinade. Excellent recipe Tessa – as always – you’ve got some ‘mad skills’ & I look forward to your emails & recipes!

    Could you use chicken thighs instead for this?

    I love this idea. I make chicken with honey, soy sauce and garlic, but adding lime and siracha sounds so good! Thank you for that 🙂

    Made it tonight and 2 out of 3 kids liked it a lot! I’m definitely going to try it with thighs next time. Great recipe! Thank you.

    I made this tonight and LOVED it! I cut the sriracha sauce in half because my boyfriend doesn’t like too much heat, added an extra lime because I had 3 on hand and they were small, and omitted the salt because I had full-sodium soy sauce. It turned out great–we both loved it!! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe! 🙂

    Just tried it. I replaced limes with rice vinegear to have a less fruity flavour and this came out ridculously tasty. Everyone loved it 😀

    can I bake this instead? If so, what temperature and for how long? Thanks!

      I would say 350°F for 20-30 min depending on the size of the chicken breasts.

    What sides would you make with this? I was thinking potatoes and cauliflower, but I don’t know what earthy flavors would complement the lime and honey.

    Hi Tessa! This sounds wonderful and can’t wait to try it it. Would this recipe still taste the same if I freeze the chicken with the marinade? I’d like to be able to have it already prepared and just be able to thaw and grill for those busy weeknights. Please let me know your thoughts! Thanks.

      I don’t see why that wouldn’t work! I would just be careful of letting the defrosted chicken sit in the marinade too long because of the lime juice.

    Came across this recipe about a month ago and I make it every week for my lunches! It has everything you could ask for! Sweet yet savoury with a little bit of spice! I bake it at 450 for 16 minutes but i cut my chicken in strips!
    Thanks for the recipe I call it my crack chicken!!
