  • Total: 25 m
  • Servings:


  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice, fresh
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp lime zest, freshly grated
  • 1 tbsp honey or xylitol honey
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3 lb chicken bone-in, skin-on (drumsticks, thighs, or breasts)


  1. In a large glass baking dish, combine oil, lime juice, garlic, honey, cumin, chipotle powder, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  2. Pat chicken dry with paper towel, then add to baking dish and turn to coat. Let marinate in fridge for 2 or 3 hours, turning occasionally.
  3. Preheat grill to medium heat. Place chicken on grill, skin-side down and place cover on grill (should be well ventilated). Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until skin is golden and crisp.
  4. Turn chicken over and cook for 5 more minutes, then check for doneness. Insert an instant read thermometer into thickest part of chicken without touching bone.
  5. Fully cooked chicken should reach 165F. If not, cook 3 to 5 minutes more, until done.
