This is the marinade I use for the chicken in my chicken lime taquitos, but it is so wonderful plain, I thought I'd post it separately. You can use any chicken pieces you prefer. This is just wonderful!

Incredibly simple, tender and the perfect flavor! We didn't use pieces. We doubled the recipe and butterflied a whole chicken. Will definitely be making this again. It's on our "must-make-this-again" list. Thanks much to the original poster :)

Ok, this is so far the best marinated grilled chicken I've ever made! I only got about 3 hours marinating time and my chicken just sucked up so much flavor! It was tangy and delicious. Will be using this marinade for a long time :)

So wonderful! Made this with 2 chicken breasts and halved the recipe. Marinated for just over 2 hours and it tasted so good. I think next time I will cut it up and eat as a taco/burrito.
