Week 39 - Lime-chili chicken

The Recipe
450g chicken
2 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp honey

In a small bowl or cup, combine lime juice, oil, Tabasco sauce and salt. Place chicken in a plastic bag; add 2tbsp of marinade (reserve remainder), seal bag and marinate at room temperature for about 15 minutes. Stir honey into reserved marinade until dissolved. Cook chicken for 6-10 minutes or until just cooked through. Brush both sides of chicken with some of the reserved marinade and continue to cook until lightly browned.

The Verdict
VERY lime-y! I couldn't taste the chili at all, but the lime was almost overpowering. Possibly because I used concentrated lime juice instead of juice from an actual lime? Apart from that, it tasted fine. Nothing special though, and I have other chicken recipes I prefer, so probably not likely to remake this one.
