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!!
