Grilled Sweet Chili Lime Chicken – easy summer dinner

Hello summery people!

It was warm today,  by Minnesota standards, a whopping 84°! And of course, or air conditioner needs to be serviced- Ugh! I must say,  I am not a warm weather girl.  Give me cool days and even cooler nights. Autumn,  now there is a wonderful season! wpid-20150629_173904-1.jpg

Thank god for grilling dinner and microwave ovens to warm some bread to go with dinner.

Dinner tonight comes together in a snap. Make the marinade in the morning, let chicken soak up the marinade-goodness throughout the day,  and then grill those birds up!

This chicken turns out a little sweet with an underlying grill taste. Pair it with a cool salad and some homemade bread…Shazam, a light summer meal that tastes like you slaved all day.

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce  (I used Frank’s Red Hot)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp orange marmalade
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Green onions and sesame seeds for garnish


  1. In a small bowl,  whisk together sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, orange marmalade, lime juice, brown sugar, and minced garlic. Reserve 1/4 cup of the sauce to brush on chicken once finished cooking.
  2. Marinade the chicken in the rest of the sauce for 30 minutes up to 8 hours.
  3. Put the chicken on the grill and grill on each side until no longer pink and is thoroughly cooked.
  4. Brush the tops of the chicken with remaining marinade and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
