Herbed Lime Chicken

When we have friends over during the summer, I usually serve this grilled chicken. It's tender, moist and bursting with the tangy taste of lime. I'm often asked for the recipe.—Kay Alliman, Biggsville, Illinois

    marinating seems way too long and it was a bit soggy or over moist, maybe should not marinate as long as stated or what should the grilling temp be? i did 165 to 170 for the stated time and it just didnt seem enough time nor right temp.
