Grilled Garlic-Lime Chicken

Studded with lime zest and garlic, the unique (vegan, soy-free) mayonnaise-based marinade for these grilled chicken thighs comes together in less than a minute and is deliciously flavorful. If you’ve never used a mayo-based marinade before, you’re in for a treat. It browns up beautifully and protects the lime zest and garlic from burning. Serve this with Rice Cooker Lime-Coconut Rice and a mixed green salad for a perfect and effortless summer meal.
