Mom's Recipe Book: Garlic Lime Chicken

One more entry into Mom's Recipe Book, and tomorrow we'll be back to our regularly unscheduled programming. (But you can look forward to frequent further forays into the goodness of Mom's cooking!)

From the "Chicken & Fish" section...

Garlic Lime Chicken
1/3 c soy sauce
1/4 c lime juice
1 T Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
Pepper, to taste
4 to 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets

Mix first five ingredients, and marinate chicken at least 30 minutes. Remove from marinade, and sprinkle with pepper.

Cook on grill or in a skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Turn halfway through, and cook to an internal temperature of 170 degrees.

This has always been one of my favorites! It is so-o-o-o good grilled!

I am printing this one off and handing it to my future hubby, otherwise known as 'the one that does all the cooking'. Thankyou C Beth, and of course C. Beths mum.

Chris said...

I'm always looking for new ways to grill. Thanks!

Cathy said...

This recipe is also very good cold - so no need to heat up leftovers. - Beth's mom

Sandra said...

Another great recipe! Apparently, she's not just a great quilter! :)

You had me at "garlic" and cemented it with "lime". Two of my fave flavors are garlic and citrus. Can't wait to try this!

Angie said...

Both sound really yummy. I can't wait to try them.

Lyndsay said...

Ack! I'm hungry, why does everywhere I look have to be filled with food? Dang it :)

Laralee said...

This will be used this weekend for sure!! Sounds wonderful.

Mmmm....that marinade sounds delish!! I'll definitely give it a try. I'm always looking for new ways to spice up chicken!

Becki--I enjoyed this so much growing up too--when I posted this recipe I realized I really need to make it myself!

EliandMe--Wow, what a man! Of course, I love to cook, so I'm okay with my husband not cooking much...but he'd be pretty perfect if he LOVED doing dishes. Oh, well, it would be intimidating to live with a perfect man, right? :)

Chris--No problem! Let me know how you like it.

Mom--Thanks for the tip!

Sandra--Very true! She can keep a family fed AND warm...Proverbs 31 woman!

ElleBee--Oh, good, let me know if you like it!

Angie--Both are good AND easy. Let me know what you think!

Lyndsay--I know what you mean! At least I didn't post photos, right? :)

Laralee--Oh, good, let me know what you think of it!

Foreverfoldinglaundry--Yeah, we eat quite a bit of chicken; it's always fun to find a new, good chicken recipe.

I do like your Mom's recipes. So often I see a recipe and think 'I'd like to do that' and then get put off by the fact that the ingredients are either exotic or not in my cupboard. Your Mom's use everday things to such good effect. I'll be trying this one soon.

Just posted an adapted version of this recipe on my blog. It was a REALLY good marinade for tofu / tempeh! :)
