Coconut Lime Grilled Chicken

I have a huge upright freezer that I vowed to use better in 2017. I prepped a lot of recipes back in August, and I have been working through them over the last few months. I first made this back when I could get to my grill outside, and the guys devoured it before I could even reach for the camera.  Now, the grill is buried under a few inches of snow and ice, so I prepared this batch on an indoor grill.  Not as pretty to photograph, but still tastes amazing!

I didn't make any changes to the recipe except to use dried parsley instead of fresh.  One of my resolutions for 2018 is to get an herb garden in!   Thank you so much to Ruth at Living Well Spending Less for this fantastic recipe :)

To prepare: Thaw chicken. Grill 6 to 8 minutes per side, until chicken tests 160ยบ.


  1. Looks really good. Do you think it will work cooking it on stovetop?

    1. Absolutely! I've made it on the outdoor grill, indoor grill, stove top in a skillet, breaded it and baked it in the oven. Very, very versatile recipe.
