Garlic and Lime Grilled Chicken

The end of summer is right around the corner, but that does not mean that we have to stop grilling.  I will be grilling until the cold weather begins.  So for now I'm going to enjoy it as much as I can.  This garlic and lime marinade is excellent on wings too.  The combination of the lime and garlic is perfect.  The chicken was so juicy and tender and the lime flavor gave it a nice kick. I highly recommend this recipe.

I'm a chicken breast kind of girl, but my husband likes dark meat. These chicken quarters came out so delicious that I saw my husband taking out the BBQ sauce, and I told him to put it away.  The lime came thru so good...I didn't want to hide that flavor with BBQ sauce..my husband agreed. 


4-6 pieces of chicken quarters
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
1/2 tsp of onion powder
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 tbsp of olive oil
6 garlic gloves minced
juice of 3 limes

Wash and clean the chicken. Set aside.  In a small bowl mix all other ingredients, it will become a paste like texture.  Rub the chicken with the paste, specially under the skin.  You can marinade the chicken the night before and refrigerate. Set the grill on low to medium heat and cook on both sides, turning the chicken a couple of times.  Cook for about 25-30 minutes or until juices are running clear.
