Grilled Honey Lime Chicken with Cowboy Caviar

Grilled Honey Lime Chicken with Cowboy Caviar

Part bean salad and part salsa dip, cowboy caviar is a vibrant combination of black-eyed peas, corn, tomatoes, onions and avocado. We pour it over grilled chicken, marinated with honey and lime, for a recipe that’s anything but boring. Serve over greens for a low-carb meal or over brown rice for energizing carbs and fiber.

Grilled Honey Lime Chicken with Cowboy Caviar


  • 3 1/2 tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 4 (5-ounce or 140 grams per breast) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (15.5-ounce or 440 grams) can reduced-sodium black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup (80 grams) fresh or frozen and thawed yellow corn, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small (90 grams) ripe tomato, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small (150 grams) avocado, chopped
  • 1/4 medium (30 grams) red onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


Combine 2 tablespoons lime juice, honey, oil, pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a plastic storage bag or shallow container. Add chicken, tossing to coat. Close the bag or cover, and marinate in the refrigerator 15 minutes up to 2 hours.

Meanwhile, make Cowboy Caviar by combining beans, corn, tomato, avocado, onion, cilantro and cumin in a medium bowl. Stir in the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Grill chicken 5 minutes on each side, or until internal temperature reaches 160°F.

Serve each breast with 3/4 cup Cowboy Caviar.
