very tender chicken soaked with flavor

Top Review by Martha Cooks

I used 3 pounds (about 3 large breasts) of bone in chicken. The lime taste really came through. The meat was tender and juicy. My husband put cayanne on his. I also used about 2 tablespoons instead of the 2 teaspoon written. This looked beautiful and gave a different taste than baked chicken I've tasted before. I will for sure make this one again!
