Chili Lime Chicken (Oamc)

READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by thejoybird

Zesty and flavorful with a little kick. I find that this is even better if you use chicken still on the bone. This is so convenient, I always have a batch in my freezer for those nights when I just don't feel like cooking.

I had a bag of frozen chicken, and just dumped the marinade ingredients in and let it thaw. I used Kraft Roasted Red Pepper Italian dressing and Cajun sunshine hot sauce. The chicken was very moist, and we found ours quite flavorful. This is very good when you don't feel like making something elaborate. A good dish for OAMC. Thanks for posting!
