Key West Grilled Chicken

·         3 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos
·         2 Tbs. honey
·         1 tablespoon coconut oil
·         Juice of 1 Lime
·         1 teaspoon minced garlic
·         4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

In a small bowl combine soy sauce, honey, vegetable oil, lime juice, and garlic.
If you want to have grilled breasts, Place chicken breast halves into the mixture, and turn to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes. If you prefer kebabs, as are pictured, cut the chicken into large chunks, skewer onto bamboo sticks that have been soaked in water for 5 minutes, and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
For a slightly zestier version, add a teaspoon of Freshly Chopped cilantro to the marinade.
Grill on medium high heat for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear. For variation, try marinating shrimp, (which will take 2-4 minutes to grill in all!)
