  • 4 4 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs

For the Marinade:

  • 4 medium green onions, sliced
  • 1-2 jalapeno chilis, seeded and chopped (for additional heat, leave seeds in)
  • 1/3 c. lemon juice
  • 1/4 c. honey, warmed slightly to soften
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Add marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Place chicken in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag.

  2. Pour marinade over chicken and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

  3. Prep your grill or heavy flat-bottom skillet to medium-high heat.

  4. Remove chicken from marinade and place on grill or skillet. (Use a non-stick skillet or add olive oil to skillet prior to cooking chicken.)

  5. Cover and cook for 6-7 minutes per side or until internal temperature has reached 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
