Reviews for Chicken in Lime Butter
"This is a fast and easy recipe for a weeknight meal. I felt it was a little bland so I will add more lime and chives next time and maybe a spice blend to the chicken rather than just salt and pepper."
"Fast and easy recipe for chicken. It was good, but I couldn't taste the lime in the sauce. Next time I will add more."
"Delicious and super fast and easy! I served this with rice pilaf and green beans."
"This recipe is great and often asked for by my husband. The only change I make sometimes is that he prefers lemon over lime and I don't always include the chives since they aren't always something I keep on hand at home. Delicious and so easy to make."
"Delicious and easy! My favorite chicken recipe!"
