Citrus Chili Chicken

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by whitebreadtoast

After trying a delicious grilled corn recipe which featured fresh, high quality chili powder and limes, I was inspired to try making a marinade based on the same for chicken. It was refreshing and delicious - perfect for hot Florida summer nights. I served with Jasmine rice.

Thanks for a great recipe. Couldn't get much easier. I served it with corn on the cob, roasted in the oven, and it could not have tasted any better. Will make this again and again. Thanks again!
