"It was kind of dry. I think baking might be better rather than broiling."

"How come there was a pan full of juice when I baked it? I realize the recipe calls for broiling, but I haven't broiled much & was afraid of overcooking them."

"I'm glad to be the first to post on this recipe, and let me say that everyone should put this one in their "Blue Ribbon" file - it's easy, elegant, and has outstanding taste! The fresh lime juice, lime peel and thyme make the recipe. I used boneless breast halves and baked them rather than broiled, but I'll try it that way next time. Everyone should try this one."
