Loved this! Pounded the chicken breasts then doubled the spice mixture to make sure the breasts were covered. Used homemade jalapeno jelly. Not overly spicy, even with the spices doubled, with lots of flavor from the fresh lime and lemon juice. Served with couscous and sauteed squashes, red peppers. and onions. Healthy and delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
