Reviews for Grilled Caribbean Lime Chicken
"This chicken is amazing!!!!!! It has such a great flavor and my family LOVED it!"
"My daughter & I made this recipe for our Father's Day dinner. Everyone liked it, even the kids! It is easy to make too!"
"I really liked the marinade for the chicken. The salsa was good, but nobody at our house is a fan of avocado, so I would probably omit that next time."
"This is a great "company" recipe--and good for every day use, too. Great salsa!"
"we were out of gas so couldn't grill the chicken and broiled it instead. The chicken still came out yummy and the salsa was very tasty!"
"outstanding! The salsa really is the star of the show and perfectly complements the lime chicken. It's the new favorite "grilled chicken" recipe in our house!"
