    Excellent marinade for chicken. I used it to make some chicken for salads. I like how quick it was to make. Very good!

    This is a new family favorite! The chicken stayed so moist & the lime juice gave it a great fresh flavor. I think next time I will add a bit of lime zest for more citrus flavor.

    Based on some of the other reviews calling this bland I marinated the chicken for four hours. The chicken was so good. Great flavor!

    Easy to make. All my kids liked it, even my picky eater. I served it over steamed organic rice with vegetables.

    This was so good. I did not discard the marinade though I basted the chicken while it was grilling. My guests really enjoyed it.
