We LOVED this dinner. The chicken was incredibly tender and flavorful. The basting sauce, itself, is fantastic. I could have eaten that all by itself! I was expecting 3 for dinner, so had marinated 3 chicken breasts. We ended up having 5 people for dinner. So once I took the picture of a whole chicken breast, I sliced them into strips. I then served the chicken strips over lightly dressed salad greens mixed with crumbled tortilla chips. It was a hit! Thank you. ~Made for Please Review My Recipe~
OK, I must confess; I've never had Fiesta Lime Chicken at Applebee's. I know, it's a menu staple, but I( always find something else I wanna try :). That said, I tagged this because I was intrigued, and, tho lengthy, the ingredients and instructions are on the MONEY. I marinated my chicken for almost 4 hours, and cooked on my indoor grill. I then topped with sauce mix and cheese, and put under the broiler for 5 minutes. I served over Tostito scoops, with rice, and the chicken was moist and flavorful. I'm so happy you shared this recipe, seesko, as we really enjoyed it, and I'll be making it again!
This was really tasty, even without the tequila, which is NOT one of my best friends - (see incident at age 17). Besides that omission and halving the recipe, I made it as indicated and, well, we were HAPPY. :o) Thanks for sharing, seesko!
Another 5 stars from the husband. Even though it looks like it will take a long time with the list of ingredients it doesn't. Well worth doing. Thanks.
this is one of my absolute FAVORITE recipes! i normally hate marinating chicken, because it takes time to plan ahead ... but it is TOTALLY worth it on this one. oh yum! now i know what i'm making for dinner tomorrow!
Pretty close to the signature dish at Applebee's. I added a pico de gallo just before serving.
I made this for supper last night and it was as the kids would say "awesome". Just like I remembered it from Applebee's.. I fell in love with it there the first time I had it. It has a wonderful flavor and could be eaten with anything for an accompaniment. I had cooked some great northern beans and that's what we had with it. Along with some fresh sliced tomatoes.
We made this last night and it is as close as you can get Without going to Applebee's ,thats what my son of 19 and girlfriend said,they know, because it's the only item they order there.It's a lot less expensive also.This is the first time I have it myself and have to agree as they explained the different taste that comes along with this dish, it is outstanding.I watched the Video on You Tube of what was in the dish then compared it to this one,take a look at the video then come back here and print this one!
There is only one suggestion that I would make! The amount of marinade is enough for twice the amount of chicken listed here.You can easily use make 2-2 1/2 pounds of chicken instead of 1 pound!
No more ordering out for Fiesta Lime Chicken at Applebee's!Thank you for listing the Copycat Recipe seesko.
I have this everytime i go to Applebees. I liked this better!! I fried some tortilla strips. This was awesome!
Very tasty, and not too difficult to make! I tripled the sauce and used it as a dressing over a mexican salad as well. Served with Cheesy Mexican rice ... all of my family enjoyed it. (The youngest one ate the grilled chicken less sauce/cheese though). Thanks for posting; we will make this again!
