Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice, fresh
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp lime zest, freshly grated
  • 1 tbsp honey or xylitol honey
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3 lb chicken bone-in, skin-on (drumsticks, thighs, or breasts)

Instructions
 

  • In a large glass baking dish, combine oil, lime juice, garlic, honey, cumin, chipotle powder, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Pat chicken dry with paper towel, then add to baking dish and turn to coat. Let marinate in fridge for 2 or 3 hours, turning occasionally.
  • Preheat grill to medium heat. Place chicken on grill, skin-side down and place cover on grill (should be well ventilated). Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until skin is golden and crisp.
  • Turn chicken over and cook for 5 more minutes, then check for doneness. Insert an instant read thermometer into thickest part of chicken without touching bone.
  • Fully cooked chicken should reach 165F. If not, cook 3 to 5 minutes more, until done.
