Lime-Honey Grilled Chicken about 327 Calories (for a large piece)

Only about 227 calories for half a large breast
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 6 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated lime zest
  • 6 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 4  large chicken breast or 8 small chicken breast (thawed)

  1. Mix honey, soy sauce, lime zest, lime juice, and crushed red pepper in a large bowl. Add chicken; stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. About 20 minutes before you are ready to grill, preheat a gas grill or build a fire in a charcoal grill and let it burn down to medium heat. Spray grates with cooking spray
  3. If using a gas grill, turn down to low. If using a charcoal grill, move the coals to one side. Remove the chicken from the marinade (reserve marinade). Close the lid and roast about 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, place the marinade in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and boil until reduced by about half and thickened to a glaze, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Turn the chicken and lightly brush with some of the glaze. Cover and continue roasting, basting once more about halfway through cooking.
