Smokey Lime Chicken + 5-Ingredient Strawberry Salsa

  • Author: Kelsey



For the Dressing & Marinade

  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

For the Salsa

  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup fresh mint, thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the lime zest and juice, salt, and paprika. Whisk in the olive oil until well incorporated.
  • Place the chicken breasts in a shallow baking dish or large ziplock bag. Pour in half of the dressing and stir to coat. Reserve the remaining dressing in a separate bowl.
  • Refrigerate the chicken for half an hour.
  • Meanwhile, make the salsa by mixing together the strawberries, green onion, mint, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, and 1 tablespoon lime juice in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat a grill to medium. Remove the chicken from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Discard the marinade.
  • Grill the chicken over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes per side, flipping once, until browned and cooked through.
  • Serve the chicken warm, topped with strawberry salsa and drizzled with the remaining dressing.
  • Serves 4.
