How to make Taco Lime Grilled Chicken:
- Place chicken into a large plastic bag.
- Add taco seasoning and the juice from both limes and the zest from one.
- Rub chicken in bag to mix seasoning.
- Place chicken in the fridge to marinate.
- Grill on medium heat until chicken is cooked through and a safe temperature.
Do I have to marinate overnight?
You of course don’t have to marinate it and can grill right away. The longer you marinate it the better your chicken will taste.

Rub chicken in bag to mix seasoning. Place chicken in the fridge for at least an hour but overnight would be best.
