Lime Grilled Chicken

A Very Summer-y Flavor for Memorial Day Weekend.

These are also fantastic sliced and put on a big salad!

6 chicken breast halves(or any part really, I use boneless, skinless)
3/4 cup water
1-2 fresh limes, juiced (about 1/4 cup, WITH pulp)
zest of 1/2 lime
3 TB soy sauce
1 TB Worcestershire sauce
1 TB McCormick's Grill Mates Mojito Lime Seasoning(this is not necessary but if does go well!)
Like a spicy kick? Add in red pepper flakes to taste!

Combine Marinade in a gallon size ziplock bag
Add chicken and marinate for 1-2 hours in the fridge, you can go longer but dont go too much because the acid from the lime starts to break down the meat..

A great way to cook them is to preheat a pan over medium heat with a small touch of oil. Sear them on both sides for a good 3-4 minutes then finish them off on the grill! This helps keep it juicier.
But it can be done directly on the grill, broiler or even baked if you want!

Cook to an internal temp of 165.
