Seasonings and a splash of lime make this chicken something special, writes Carma Blosser from Livermore, Colorado. “It is also really tasty in salads and sandwiches and can also be prepared on an indoor grill.” TIP: MAKE EXTRA PIECES TO FREEZE IN INDIVIDUAL SERVINGS AND KEEP ON HAND FOR DROP-IN GUESTS, CARMA SUGGESTS.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 21, 2012

"This was a fantastic recipe for a quick dinner with a girlfriend of mine. Full of flavor, tender, and juicy. I've been making this recipe, or a slightly altered version of it every week since in the week."
