Jalapeno Lime Grilled Chicken Marinade Recipe

This delicious grilled chicken marinade recipe combines lime, honey, jalapeño, garlic and more, for a really piquant and bold flavor. You can use chicken breasts instead of chicken wings if you like, although this recipe does especially suit wings. If you would rather broil the chicken, then just arrange the wings on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet six inches from a hot broiler and turn them once during the cooking time.

If you have a grill then that is perhaps the preferred method of cooking wings, because you will get the experience of cooking outdoors (which is always fun) and you can also use a charcoal grill to give the wings a mouthwatering smoky flavor. Perhaps you are not fond of spicy food, in which case simply reduce the amount of jalapeño, or you could even leave it out altogether to eliminate the spiciness.

You can serve these spicy wings with a cooling sauce, perhaps guacamole or garlic mayonnaise, for dipping. They are great as a party snack or you could swap the wings for chicken thighs or breast and serve them for dinner with your favorite side dishes. Larger chicken pieces will take longer to cook.

Hello, I'm Christine. Thanks for dropping by and welcome to Amazing Sauces. Food is a very important part of our family's lives, and I find a homemade sauce often finishes a dish perfectly. Whether you are making something with chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, an appetizer, or even a dessert recipe, a sauce is often the ideal finishing touch.

You will find many sauce recipes here, all conveniently in one place, from the classics like tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and cheese sauce, to gravies, marinades, and unusual ideas for sauces too like ginger-plum sauce or gorgonzola sauce.

Some sauces can be drizzled over the meal, while others are best served on the side. Some will work as a dip or sauce, while others are great for basting, marinating or adding a splash of color to a recipe. Try our creamy gravies with your breakfast, one of our international steak marinades for a sophisticated spin on dinner, or learn how to make a classic béarnaise or rich red wine sauce to complement your dish.

Thanks for visiting,
