FAQs About Honey Key Lime Grilled Chicken

Yes, you can substitute regular lime juice if key lime juice is not available. The flavor will be slightly different but still delicious.

How long should I marinate the chicken?

For the best flavor, marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes. If you have more time, marinating for a few hours or overnight will enhance the flavor even more.
