Pacific Lime Chicken from Pure Simple Cooking

This flavorful chicken marinates in a soy sauce, honey and lime juice marinade for as little as 15 minutes and is bursting with flavor.


  • 5 Tablespoons honey
  • 5 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • juice of 4 limes
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
  • leaves from 5 sprigs of thyme I used 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • black pepper to taste
  • 8 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs


  • Mix the marinade ingredients together. Use a small paring knife to make incisions into the non-skin side of the chicken. Put the chicken in a dish you can cover or a gallon-sized ziplock bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken and cover the dish or seal the bag. Marinate 15 minutes to several hours, turning the chicken now and then.
  • Preheat the oven to 375. Lift the chicken from the marinade and place in a shallow baking dish so it lies in a single layer, skin side up. Cook for 45 minutes or so, until done, basting now and then if you remember.
  • Serve with lime wedges if you’d like.
