  • Ziploc Bag
  • Grill
  • meat thermometer


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • 6 lettuce leaves optional
  • 2 tomatoes (sliced) optional
  • 1 cup dill pickle slices optional
  • 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise optional
  • 2 avocados (sliced) optional


  • Mix together the oil, honey, lime juice, chili powder, and cumin in a ziploc bag. Place chicken inside, zip bag closed, and make sure that chicken is fully coated by marinade. Place bag of chicken in the fridge and let marinade for at least 30 minutes (I actually let mine go for about 2 hours- but you could even let it go for 8-10 hours for really flavorful meat!).
  • Remove chicken from fridge and preheat grill to medium high heat. Grill the chicken for a couple of minutes on each side, turning once, until the chicken is no longer pink and reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • If you want, you can toast your buns on the grill.
  • Top with your favorite toppings.
