    Lavender Lynn's Note:

    This marinade is great. If you start marinating this in the morning, it will make a really quick supper in the evening. Recipe from Family Fun with some changes. Prep time does not include marinating time.

      OMG!!! This was sooo good!!! I followed the directions for the time to marinate the chicken and it didn't cook it at all, I think that is a incorrect theory/myth!! It was so flavorful, never thought it would be (based on the few ingredients for the marinade), but also so moist and just so yummy for a chicken breast!! I cut the recipe back to 1/4 of the recipe and used one large chicken breast. I also wasn't sure if the tortilla would get crispy like a tostada and it did, I added shredded lettuce, sliced chicken, mixture of cheddar and monterey jack cheese and then some sour cream and green onion. I then added some salsa, after photo, on the side, but never used it, didn't need it!! I saved 1/2 of the chicken to make in my next lunch of Grilled Cheese Quesadillas!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe that will be made again!!! Made for PRMR Tag Game.

      These were very good. The chicken marinated for about 1 1/2 hours instead of the 4. I was a little concerned about leaving the chicken in the lime juice for that length of time. Even after 1 1/2 hours the chicken was very well flavored, moist and delicious.
