Lime Chicken

Zesty Chicken!

Zesty Chicken!

You’ll Need:
* 3 tablespoons soy sauce
* 2 Tbs. honey
* 1 tablespoon vegetable 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. Serve with fresh salad, steamed veggies, baked potato or any of your favorite sides. For variation, try marinating shrimp, (which will take 2-4 minutes to grill in all!)

Fruit Ice Cubes

Fun ice cubes for your drink of choice!

Fun ice cubes for your drink of choice!

This is great fun, healthy (pure fruit!), super easy and will add a touch of pure, refreshing class to your drinks! This is a guaranteed pleaser for kids and adults alike. Why didn’t I think of this years ago?

You will need:
• Blender (although you could mash the fruit quite successfully in a bowl if you want to do it ‘low-tech’ style!)
• Ice cube trays
• Your favorite fruit

Put the desired fruit in the blender and either puree or blend for a shorter time in order to leave some chunks (notice how great this looks with berries, kiwi and other fruit). Pour the blended fruit into your ice cube trays, freeze and you’re done!

Add cubes to lemonade, water or frozen drink of choice!
