Found this recipe on another website and LOVED it. It makes for such a great summer meal. I like to pair it with frozen margaritas. ;-)

I can't believe that no one has tried this recipe yet. I made as written with the exception of doubling the hot sauce and adding about 2 tablespoons honey to the marinade. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and marinated them overnight. I was rewarded with extremely flavorful, juicy, tender chicken. It doesn't get much easier than this. I will be making this recipe often during the grilling season. Mad for My-3-Chefs June 2012.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place olive oil, lime juice, onion, tarragon, salt, and hot sauce into a large, resealable plastic bag; shake to mix.
  2. Add chicken thighs, coat with marinade, squeeze out air, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. (I leave it in overnight).
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate. Remove chicken from marinade, and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Grill chicken for about 30 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center.
