Jalapeno Grilled Chicken

I am always looking for a new way to make chicken. I love grilling chicken and seem to always make chicken breasts that way so finding a variety of marinades of sauces is important to me. I found this recipe on Pinterest. Here is the original. I did make mine a little different. I enjoyed it and had some for leftovers. I separated the marinade before adding the jalapenos so that the kids could have some chicken as well. I marinated 2 chicken breast for them. I had the chicken with quinoa mac and cheese, which I loved, and roasted broccoli.

Jalapeno Grilled Chicken
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1 inch thickness
2 tbsp light soy
1 tbsp fish sauce
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves minced
6 jalapeno peppers, seeded, finely diced
1 lime zested
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Marinate chicken overnight.

When you are ready to grill the breasts, preheat the grill. Barbecue for 4-5 minutes per side.

I warmed some up the next day and had some hard boiled eggs, what a great lunch!
