    Instructions
    1. Whisk together all of the Buffalo Marinade ingredients in a medium bowl. Measure out 1/4 cup and add to a shallow dish or freezer bag, along with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add chicken and toss evenly to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator 2 hours up to overnight.
    2. To the remaining marinade, make your Buffalo Glaze by whisking in 1 tablespoon honey and 1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
    3. STOVETOP DIRECTIONS
    4. Let chicken sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes (time permitting).
    5. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Once very hot, add chicken and cook, undisturbed for 3-5 minutes, or until nicely browned (or blackened if you prefer) on one side. Turn chicken over, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook for approximately 5-7 more minutes (depending on thickness of chicken), or until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Brush chicken with desired amount of glaze – for more heat, more glaze; for less heat, less glaze.
    6. GRILLING DIRECTIONS
    7. Let chicken sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes (time permitting).
    8. Meanwhile, grease and preheat the grill to medium heat, 375-450°F.
    9. Grill chicken undisturbed for 5-7 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through. (An inserted thermometer should read 160 degrees F.)
    10. Remove chicken from grill and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Brush chicken with desired amount of glaze – for more heat, more glaze; for less heat, less glaze.
    Recipe Notes

    *The chicken is flavorful but not very spicy without the glaze. You can completely customize the heat of the chicken by adding more or less glaze. The more glaze the spicier the chicken
    *Try tossing the chicken with your favorite BBQ sauce – amazing!
    *Chicken is incredible on sandwiches, in wraps, salads, tacos, etc.
    *Total time does not include marinating chicken as this time will vary per individual.
