Why hello there friend! How is your January treating you so far? What is the weather like where you are? I hope it is lovely and dreamy where ever you may be.
Until this weekend, because it is now 17 degrees, January in the Cincinnati area has been fairly mild. Weather in the 50's and 60's in January makes me dream of spring weather with perfect hiking and camping conditions and also lots of grilling out.
Not that winter keeps me from using the grill much. I am year round griller over here, how about you?
Is griller even a word? Whelp, it is now.
Grilled chicken is the best chicken in my opinion and you can never go wrong with having a crap ton of ways to make it taste great.
For all you year round "grillers" out there I have created a lovely tasty gluten free chicken marinade for you! If you think it is way dumb to freeze your butt off while making chicken outside then be sure to save this for later!
Despite the bold flavors in the title, this jalapeno lime chicken marinade is actually quite subtle. Like a sublime pleasant hint of jalapeno and lime, not a kick you in the face I am so spicy kinda flavor.
Not that I would mind a marinade that did that. But this marinade is perfect because you get super fresh flavors that 1) kids will still eat and 2) chicken marinated in this gluten free jalapeno lime marinade will go with almost everything.
We ate this chicken twice, once with curry and the other on a salad. Both tasted great! And OMG I almost forgot. You HAVE to try this sauce with the grilled chicken you make.
