The marinade for this recipe is fantastic. I kept to the recipe instructions and didn't marinade the chicken beyond an hour. But the flavor of the marinade didn't transfer to the chicken well, even with the step of basting with the reserved marinade. Rather than risk marinading the chicken longer (and risk "cooking" the chicken in the lime), I think I'll try this recipe again and cut a shallow slit in the side of each chicken piece to allow the marinade to seep in and flavor the chicken a bit more. Because it's a great marinade for grilled chicken. Thanks for sharing your recipe, breezermom.
