    Sandy in Houston's Note:

    This chicken and rich sauce is a perfect match with fresh spinach fettuccini. We have crusty rolls on the side to mop up the sauce, its so delcious that you don't want to leave any on your plate.

      this tasted great, however, I had to add alot more cream, more tequila and more lime juice and it still wasn't enough sauce. Next time I will double the sauce to begin with and then add if I need to. Other than that, tastes just like the Tequila Lime Chicken served at the California Pizza Kitchen restaurants. Excellent flavor and texture, will definitely make again!!
