Made half a recipe for two chicken breast halves and worked out great. I only had lemon juice but worked fine. Used in Festival Refried Beans.

LOVED this marinade! Used it for flank steak - doubled it - and it really was simple and excellent.Thank you for posting.

Great recipe. Honestly, I didn't let it marinate that long; about 45 minutes. It would have been better if it had marinated longer, but all in all, it was awesome. I will use it from now on. Thanks for posting. 8~)

Very good! I substitute lemon juice for the lime (for lacking of planning). I marinated mine for about 30 min (again, for lack of planning), giving our grilled chicken nice, though mild flavor. Next time I'll marinate it as suggested, and perhaps add more black pepper for a bit more zing.

This was great! I used it to marinade the chicken for Grilled Mexican Chicken Salad #127201. I usually am lazy and just buy the deli chicken but this was really easy and so much better!

While easy to make, this had too much lime for our tastes. I mixed it up in the morning and grilled it for dinner. It definately could have used some spice added to it.

Great-tasting marinade for fajitas or any grilled meat. I actually marinated some pork chunks in this to make pseudo-souvlaki and we all loved the flavour. Only change was to use olive oil instead of salad oil. Next time, I'll probably throw in a couple of hot chili peppers for a little more zing.
