"The next time I make this I will use less lime juice as it was overpowering all the other seasonings in this dish."

"I combined this recipe with a similar one and added pepper jack cheese, bacon strips and served it as a sandwich on toasted sourdough. It was pretty good, but I broiled the chicken in the oven instead of grilling it. The flavor was still good, but I think grilling is probably the way to go."

"This was ok, easy and the chicken absorbed the flavor really well. Personally I didn't particularly care for the flavor, though."
