What's Cookin' - Honey Lime Marinade

We eat a lot of chicken and I love the flavor a nice marinade adds before sauteeing or grilling. One of our favorite marinades came about with a little experimentation and it's very tasty. Every time I whisk this mixture together, hubby walks by in the kitchen and comments on how good it smells.

Honey Lime Marinade

2 limes
3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup honey
2 T. rice vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt

Zest and juice the limes into a bowl. Finely mince the garlic and add to lime juice along with with the olive oil, honey, rice vinegar and salt to taste. Put chicken breasts and marinade in a ziploc baggie and refrigerate for at least one hour, but a couple of hours is better.

This marinade would also be great for fish, like tuna steaks.

I would like to present a gold medal and kiss on both cheeks to whoever invented ziploc bags. I, personally, cannot imagine life without them. Give thanks for the little things!

Actually, if you could see all the different ziploc bags I have, you wouldn't think it's such a little thing. Sandwich baggies, snack-size, quart-size, gallon-size, freezer bags. I hope whoever came up with the idea is filthy rich!!!
