Reviews for Grilled Caribbean Lime Chicken
"This was excellent, easy and would be great for a summer cookout with friends and family. I served it with Zataran's Yellow Rice. I doubled the salsa and served it next day with tortilla chips."
"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!"
