ready in:
  over 5 hrs


1 cup Key lime juice
2 teaspoons honey
2/3 cup water
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper, optional
3 pounds chicken pieces


Combine the lime juice, honey, water, salt, pepper, thyme, oil, ginger, and crushed red pepper in a blender. Process until combined.

Pour half of the marinade mixture into a covered container and place in the refrigerator. Place the chicken pieces in a bowl or plastic container with a lid. Pour the remaining lime mixture over the chicken, turning the chicken to coat in the mixture. Cover the container and refrigerate the chicken 8 hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Drain the chicken from the marinade and place the chicken in a single layer in a baking dish. Place in the oven and bake at 325 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours or until the chicken is cooked through. Baste the chicken with the reserved marinade every 30 minutes.

Serve the chicken hot.
