This was a good marinade. I used it on boneless chicken breasts and broiled them instead of grilling. I thought the tanginess from the lime juice was too intense, and I think DD agreed by exhibiting her little puckered face. On the other hand, DH thought it was perfect. For those with similar taste buds to mine, I would recommend reducing the lime juice by half (1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup). Thanks for sharing this recipe! (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #42)
Great marinade! I used it on chicken wings and thighs, which I baked. Great flavors and chicken was really moist. Think this would be good on a firm white fish also, such as halibut. I will try it again on grilled chicken.
This was a great marinade! This is the first time I ever cooked so I was a little nervous but it turned out great!
