Honey Lime Grilled Chicken

I'm always in need of ways to use lime juice!

½ cup honey                                                                1/3 cup soy sauce
¼ cup lime juice                                                          4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

In a resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container, combine the honey, soy sauce, and lime juice; mix well.  Add chicken and turn to coat.  Seal or cover and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes (or longer).  Drain and discard marinade.  Grill chicken, uncovered, over medium heat for 6-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

This was one of the freezer crock pot meals.  Dave & I really liked it!!

1 1/2 - 2 lbs. chicken breasts (can be frozen)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can fiesta nacho soup
2 cans Rotel Tomatoes with cilantro & lime juice (or any rotel tomatoes will work)
2 cups chicken broth
1 TBL cilantro
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
shredded cheddar cheese and corn tortilla chips for topping

Combine all ingredients except the chicken, shredded cheddar, and chips in crockpot.  Add chicken.  Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours.  Once chicken is done, remove and shred it with a fork.  Return to the crock pot and stir.  Dish soup into bowls and top with shredded cheese, crushed tortilla chips, and fresh tomoatoes.
