Loved rthe zing from the lime! Used about 1 tsp of lime zest and added 1/2 tsp of hot pepper flakes to the recipe. I appreciated that the breasts were not cooked with a lot of oil. I just lightly sprayed a non stick skillet and they were done in no time lovely golden color and juicy. I marinated them in the fridge for about 6 hours. Great flavor I will make these again and next time I may try lemon juice & lemon zest., I always love lemon too Thanks Amber!
