Spicy Grilled Cashew Lime Chicken

This is a fun recipe to try on the grill. It has a little bite to it, which I really liked. It was fun to use cashews in the sauce as well. It made a tasty dinner for our family. I made extra that are nice to have for lunches.

This was what the chicken looked like after being grilled. I was pleased the way it grilled. Sometimes putting the sauce on it makes it burn easier.

10-12 chicken tenders
1 tsp sea salt with iodine
1/2 tsp ground pepper

1/2 cashews
3 T olive oil
3 garlic cloves
4 T soy sauce
1 T honey
1 Jalapeno seeded and chopped (If you want it less spicy you could use 1/2)
2 1/2 T fresh lime juice
1/2 C chopped cilantro for garnish* optional


1. /coat chicken tenders with salt and pepper. Set aside.

2. Pour all the ingredients in the blender for the sauce. Pulse until a smooth consistency.

3. Take 1/3 C of the sauce put the remaining 2/3 C in the fridge.

4. Baste the chicken with the 1/3 C sauce. Let it sit for 10 min.

5. Preheat the grill.

6. Place chicken on hot grill cook on both sides till nicely golden.

7. Pour remaining sauce on the chicken. (You could heat up the sauce ahead of time if you desire, I did not. ) Serve and enjoy!
