If only boneless, skinless chicken could taste good. It can with this Best Grilled Chicken recipe! This one is a family favorite!


  • 1 ΒΌ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts and/or thighs
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ΒΌ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper, if desired
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced


  1. Slice chicken breasts in half horizontally.
  2. Mince the garlic. Sprinkle with salt, then using the blade of your knife, blend the salt into the garlic and smash until you form a paste*. Transfer to a bowl along with the soy sauce, lime juice, orange juice, honey and crushed red pepper, if you’re using it. Remove and reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade. Pour the remaining marinade into a large, resealable bag. Add the chicken to the bag, remove the air from the bag, seal it and then toss to coat chicken in marinade. Place inside a bowl or other container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.
  3. When ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil the grill grates. Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade. Grill the chicken, flipping once halfway through cooking time, until internal temperature reaches 165’F, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Drizzle chicken with reserved marinade then garnish with sliced green onions and crushed red pepper, if desired.
