OK so I had to substitute a bunch when making this but I think it has lots of potential. I didn't have enough lime or lemon juice so used mostly lemonade concentrate. I reduced the sugar because of that. Then I didn't have snow peas but after tasting the dressing I thought chopped apple would be tasty. It was... I think raisins would have been good too. My only complaint was that the chicken came out tough. I wasn't dilligent about pulling it out right away though. I didn't think the flavor of the liquid soaked into the chicken either. I'm thinking next time of marinating it in the liquid then baking it in a covered pan with no liquid. I would cook the marinade over the stove to disinfect it first.
