Tried this recipe and it came out delicious! I made it with a side of mashed potatoes and it went perfectly. Very easy to follow recipe!

We absolutely love this recipe. If you can plan enough to marinate the night before, the chicken turns out very tender and flavorful. I do use about 1 lb chicken, so I’m effectively doubling the marinade. I usually use this for chicken on a burrito bowl.

Very good! I love lime on my Mexican food so this recipe was perfect. Even my very picky eater of a husband liked it! So I think that’s a win!

This was great! I grilled the chicken and stir fried the veggies with a little fajita seasoning.

Chicken was tender and juicy with pungent flavor. Would recommend adding pepper and let the marinade sit min 1 hr
