Nothing says summer like dinner on the grill! This easy-peasy coconut lime chicken is another favorite “cheater” freezer recipe–it is almost like taking a trip to the Caribbean without a passport! Not only is it almost ridiculously easy and practically mess-free, it also involves the grill, which makes my husband extra happy.

DIG DEEPER


Freezer meals are fast, easy, and a great way to get a hot, delicious meal on the table on weeknights when cooking isn’t number one on your massive to-do list. Get started and see just how easy freezer cooking can be!

To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the marinade & chicken into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required! Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as it is equally delicious just marinated at room temperature

You can use any type of chicken but my family much prefers the boneless, skinless chicken thighs, which are a darker, juicier meat and also tend to be cheaper than the boneless skinless breasts.

Coconut Lime Grilled Chicken | Ingredients you need include chicken thighs, lime, olive oil, onion, and plenty of seasonings.

Here is what you need:

3-4 limes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 can coconut milk
3-4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped (optional)
3.5-4 pounds boneless chicken
 

Juice limes for 1/3rd cup of lime juice.

Step 1:  Squeeze limes to release 1/3 cup of fresh lime juice.

Mince garlic with a garlic press.

Step 2: Mince or crush garlic in garlic press.

Whisk your wet ingredients and seasoning together in a bowl or measuring cup.

Step 3: Whisk lime juice, olive oil, coconut milk, minced garlic, diced onion, ground ginger, parsley, seasoned salt, & pepper together in bowl, then divide into 2 1-gallon freezer bags. (If freezing, be sure to label bags ahead of time.)

Marinate the chicken in a bag for at least 30 minutes, or freeze until use.

Step 4: Marinate chicken in bag for at least 30 minutes or longer, or press out air from bag and freeze.

Grill chicken for 6-8 minutes per side.

Step 5: Thaw if frozen. Grill 6-8 minutes per side, basting with additional marinade, if desired.

Coconut Lime Grilled Chicken is a delicious summer meal that can be made ahead of time and frozen for a delicious dinner any night.
