Grilled Chicken with Coconut and Lime

Simple, quick and as flavorful as you make it, this recipe is as easy as one, two, and three:

Two tablespoons of Coconut Balsamic Vinegar Salad Dressing
¼ cup Lime Olive Oil 
1 lb of chicken
You can add more of each depending on what you like, go ahead and take a taste of the marinade before you pour it over the chicken. It’s your meal so feel free to add more of the Coconut Balsamic Vinegar and Lime Olive Oil.

Set aside a dipping bowl for the cooked chicken, added flavor and so savory.

Place the chicken in a large dish and pour the marinade over the chicken; we prepared this while the grill was warming up. Place the chicken on the grill and cook over medium heat for about 8 to 10 minutes per side, until the juices run clear. 

A couple of weeks ago Doug and I were in Atlanta visiting the gran babies, Avery will be 4 in November and Beckett will be the big 1 this July. After a morning at the local pool we had lunch then visited downtown Woodstock, GA, lots of cool little shops and restaurants. Our destination was Foxtale book store and then a visit to a new shop Leaning Ladder Premium Olive Oil and Vinegar.

Avery loves Foxtales’s book store and she selected a book for her and one for her brother Beckett, if you’re in Woodstock stop in or visit your local book seller.

Next stop was the Leaning Ladder Premium Olive Oil and Vinegar shop. Brenda and I talked about trying a new recipe on Saturday but we had yet to find something that sparked our interest. As we stepped into the shop one the owners explained how we could taste the oils and vinegar before we purchased. First up was lime infused Olive Oil with Coconut Vinegar, ok we were sold! Brenda and I agreed that we would make chicken with this. Next up Strawberry Vinegar with Basil Olive Oil, ok this was amazing! Spinach salad, red onion with walnuts, yes it was as yummy as it sounds. One more taste, something to go with steak, Chipotle Olive Oil and Honey Balsamic Vinegar, ok wait for it; lingering taste of chipotle peppers, yep amazing marinade for filet minion shish kabobs. 

They sell a sampler of six bottles, all your choice of course!

If you have not visited an Olive Oil and Vinegar shop make plans today! Leaning Ladder is owned by sisters Susan and Bridget and they also host cooking classes, sign up today!

Thanks for stopping by. It is such a thrill when you share your recipes and let me know if you cook mine.

Just cook something! Cheers! Kary~ 


  1. I can't find Lime Olive Oil. can I change it with something else?

    1. Thank you for your response. If you have a fresh lime or lime juice you can add a squeeze or two. Start with a little and you can add more after they are cooked. Always better to start with less. Please let me know what you decide to do. Cheers!
