READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Top Review by atlfitgirl

I have used this recipe many times since I found it in Better Homes and Garden New Cookbook... It's so delicious and a great alternative when you don't want to grill but want that same kind of "outdoor" cooking taste... if that makes sense! I do skin the chicken drumsticks before broiling (as per the orginal recipe) since the skin has a tendency to really get charred if you don't. I love the tanginess of the lime juice... really delicious and moist chicken!
