  2. Mix minced pepper, adobo, lime juice,garlic, oil and pour half into resealable bag. DO NOT add the honey. That comes later. Reserve the rest for basting.
  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper- sometimes we use season salt or lemon pepper for a twist.
  4. Add chicken to bag and allow to marinate for 15 minutes. No need to refrigerate for this short time.
  5. Remove chicken from marinade and place on preheated grill. Discard USED marinade.
  6. Grill chicken about 4-5 minutes then flip over and cook another 4-5 minutes.

  8. Remove from grill and pour any remaining RESERVED sauce on top.
  9. Note: This can be done on an indoor grill as well. Make sure you spray or oil it before heating grill.
  10. OAMC: If freezing ahead: Put ingredients in a ziploc bag and place in freezer, flattened. To cook from frozen: Thaw in refrigerator. Cook as directed above.
