     Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   10
Preptime   1 hour

3 lbs skinless chicken thighs
4 limes zested and juiced
1 cup of roughly chopped cilantro leaves and stems
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

Trim any fat from the chicken thighs and place in a large freezer bag. To the bowl of a food processor, add the lime juice, lime zest, cilantro, olive oil, honey, cumin, salt and pepper and use food processor to combine for 30 seconds. Reserve 1/3 cup of the marinade and four the rest into the bag with the chicken. Refrigerate for 30 minutes up to overnight.
Prepare a grill on medium high at 450F, leaving one side of the grill on low or off. Grill the chicken for 5-6 minutes per side, basting each side the last time it's turned. Once each side has seared, if the chicken pieces seem to be getting too charred, move the chicken pieces to the cooler side of the grill to cook.
To redistribute the juices, let the chicken sit for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with lime wedges and additional cilantro and drizzle the rest of the reserved marinade before serving.
