2 Serrano chilies, stemmed, seeded and chopped finely
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup cilantro, rinsed, de-stemmed and chopped finely
1/2 cup parsley, rinsed, de-stemmed and chopped finely
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 cup water

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


Mix all marinade ingredients, except olive oil and salt.

Slowly whisk olive oil into above ingredients.

Season to taste with salt.

Pour marinade over chicken one hour before grilling. Remove chicken from marinade five minutes before grilling, and drain.
