"YUM ! Easy and tasty."
"Use olive oil instead of canola, use a tsp of good chili powder (try ancho) and a tsp of ground cumin. Add a handful of chopped cilantro. Don't marinade chicken for longer than 2 hours, otherwise the lime juice changes the consistency of the chicken."
"This is a wonderful marinade in this recipe. We followed the recipe for the marinade, using lemon juice instead of lime. Then we grilled the chicken and sliced it over Caesar Salad......wonderful.....my husband said he could eat it every day ! Definite keeper !"
