I have made this twice now, it is so delicious and makes the chicken so moist. This time I also made a batch of the marinade and marinated some salmon (for the non chicken eaters in my family!). They also loved the subtle citrus flavors. I didn't grill it, but baked @ 400 for 30 minutes. Once the weather gets nicer, I will most definitely grill it.

VERY NICE TASTING CHICKEN, even if I did leave out the chili powder! I marinated the breasts for several hours, & THE CITRUS & GARLIC COMBO WAS OUTSTANDING! A great keeper of a recipe! Many thanks! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game]

Delicious! Those who love citrus flavourings will love this recipe. The subtle variation of the lemon and lime: just SO scrumptious. I was keen for the chicken to soak up all those wonderful citrus juices, so I marinated the chicken overnight. I used four cloves of finely minced garlic and omitted the chili powder (personal taste preferences). Then I pan-fried the chicken breasts in a non-stick pan with just a tad of butter (probably about 2 teaspoons). I'll certainly be making this again, TeresaS, so thank you for sharing this recipe: we loved it!

Very tasty, loved the combination of flavors! I marinated then cooked in a frying pan with a little more lemon juice to coat and it turned out delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

Perfect! This recipe is perfect in flavour & moistness!! It is perfectly light & summery! I served with raw veggies & dip, macaroni salad & tossed salad. The only change I made was to marinate overnight. Very refreshing!!

This is a very tasty marinade! I used a bit less olive oil and a tad more garlic. I also poked the chicken a few times before I put it in the marinade to help it soak up a bit more of the lemon/lime flavor. I cooked this under the broiler for about 7 minutes on each side for a great meal.

Very good, subtle citrus flavor with this chicken. It would be excellent for Fajitas as well. I doubled the sauce and put it into a freezer bag with frozen chicken breasts in the morning. By the time I came home the chicken was thawed and marinaded! Thanks for posting!

This is one of the best marinade I made. We loved it. I didn't taste the chili powder so next time maybe I'll add more. It was our first bbq of the year and also with a new bbq. Thanks Teresa Made for 123 hit wonders

What a winner. This was awsome. The flavor was fantastic. I ended up making this in a grill pan cause my gas grill ran out of gas about half way through, but they turnd out great. Will put this in my grill rotation.
