"I used a plain oil and vinegar dressing. The honey and lime flavor came out perfectly. I fire grilled the chicken. The meat was tender and juicy with a great citrus and sweet flavor. Definitely will use this recipe again!"

"I used a lime vinaigrette instead of oil and vinegar and used an injector to add some of the marinade into the chicken. Turned out wonderful!"

"This chicken turned out awesome! In order to save on calories & fat, instead of just plain oil & vinegar dressing, we used fat-free Italian dressing & it worked perfectly. Definitely worth making again & again!
