Grilled Key Lime Chicken Breasts


This grilled chicken breast recipe has a light and refreshing hint of lime and tarragon. This dish is quite versatile since it can be served with a side, or diced and placed in tacos or over a fresh crisp salad.

Prep Time: 12 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 32 minutes

Yield: Serves 4 to 6


  • 4-6 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon onion, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Place chicken breasts in a zip-top plastic bag. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour onto chicken. Seal bag and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade. Place on grill and cook for 15-20 minutes, turning once. When juices run clear, remove from heat and serve with chopped cilantro or flat leaf parsley on top.
