Citrus Chicken Breast

This is a lovely way to serve chicken, but you could change that out for a beautiful trout fillet.


  • 5 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup lime juice or pink grapefruit juice
  • 1 finely chopped shallot
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • pinch of salt and ground pepper each
  • lime wedges

In a small bowl, whisk together the citrus juice, shallot, honey, oil, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper. Put the chicken breasts in a sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over. Seal and place in the refrigerator for about 3 hours.

Preheat your broiler. Place the chicken , once drained and reserving the marinade, and put the chicken in the broiler pan. Place the meat about 5 inches below the broiler and cook for 6-7 minutes. Turn the chicken over and brush with the remaining marinade.  Discard any remaining liquid.

Broil another 6-7 minutes until cooked, but not burnt. Check that the internal temperature is 170 degrees.

Serve with a kale broccoli coleslaw. Enjoy.
