Honey and Lime Chicken Legs

Total Time

A tasty sounding recipe from cookbook titled The Family Kitchen Healthy Fast-Food. Have not included 1 hour marination time. Also think this recipe would be nice with thighs on the bone too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the honey with the coriander (cilantro) and stir in the lime zest and juice.
  2. Add the chicken drumsticks and mix well, cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  3. Heat the grill (broiler).
  4. Grill (broil) the chicken drumsticks, turning and brushing frequently with the marinade for about 25 minutes or until cooked through (to check, pierce the drumsticks at its thickest part, next to the bone, the juices should run clear), timing could depend on size of drumsticks too.

Very good chicken which we all enjoyed with corn-on-the-cob and sliced tomatoes. Thanks for sharing!

Very tasty chicken recipe. I used boneless, skinless thighs instead of drumsticks. I loved the combination of honey, cilantro and lime. I used a sugar-free honey substitute. The chicken was juicy and very flavorful. I will be using this marinade often this summer. Made for June 2013 Aus/NZ Swap.
