Much like Applebees, I made a few changes to a recipe found on the internet.

Just wanted to let you know that I used to work in the kitchen at Applebees & the 'Mexi-Ranch" Dressing they use to top the chicken is just ranch dressing mixed with salsa. I know you have another concoction that sounds good, but just thought I'd put that info out there for ya :) I didn't rate the dish because I haven't made it.

Delicious!!!! ...I am a fiesta lime chicken addict when it comes to Applebee's. I'll save so much money making at home... and it's a bazillion times better :D I also broiled the chicken with the sauce and cheese on top of the chips already so the cheese and sauce spilled and bubbled all over the crunchy chips. YUM! <br/> oh, and for a marinade I did a cheaters teriyaki sauce... I used 1/4 cup orange juice (I actually used the juice of two small clementines I had in the house) , 1/4 cup soya sauce, a sprinkle of ginger powder (optional) and a few slices of fresh garlic (or a sprinkle of garlic powder). Then I just added the juice of 1 lime, and about a cup (give or take) of water. Let the chicken breasts soak for a few hours.... or a few days :P And they are moist and flavour-full.
