Southwest Marinade for Chicken

This marinade is so good. I haven't tried it on other meats yet but I'm drooling thinking about some marinated shrimp on the grill.

Here's the recipe:

1/2 cup fresh lime juice (fresh really does make a difference)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tbl. honey
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder

Mix all above ingredients together to make the marinade. Place chicken parts in a ziploc bag and add all of the marinade. Marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight. Remove chicken from fridge 20 minutes before grilling. Grill chicken until completely cooked through. Enjoy!!
