Reviews for Lime Herb Chicken
"Delicious! I was pleasantly surprised at how much flavor was in this chicken. Will definitely make again."
"Great flavor! Perfect for summer-time grilling."
"I had to make this with lemon juice, as I was out of lime juice, but the results were wonderful! Looking forward to trying it with lime juice in the near future!"
"I don't have a grill so I baked this in a roasting pan. It came out just like the pic and tasted very flavorful but I really want to try it again once I have a grill."
"My family loves this recipe. The second time I made it though I marinated it an hour or two and I liked it even better."
"I enjoyed the chicken very much (any food cooked with garlic is fine in my book!) Quick question: Can this be cooked on top of the stove in a grill pan or baked in the oven? - I'm sorry, but that was 2 questions!!!"
"short marinade time"
