There is a major heat wave passing through Los Angeles right now. It’s hot, hot, hot. So as much as I feel ready for fall foods – pumpkins, chili, hearty soups – it’s just too hot. All I want to eat is fresh, light salads and easy grill or no cook options. This simple chicken dish is packed with flavor from the lime, cilantro, honey, and red pepper flakes. Seriously, it’s some of the best chicken around. The yogurt and lime juice make the chicken incredibly tender and then there is the sauce. You’ll want to swim in it. Really. I could eat it in anything. Curious about the salad? It’s coming tomorrow.

1

Add the cilantro, lime juice, garlic, honey, salt, cumin, red pepper flakes, olive oil, and yogurt to a food processor. Pulse until a marinade/sauce is formed.

2

Marinate the chicken in half of the mixture overnight, ideally for around 24 hours. Save remaining sauce for dipping/drizzling.

3

When ready to cook, remove chicken and let excess marinate drip off. Using a grill or grill pan, preheat the grill and cook the chicken for about 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through.
