I liked the use of Rose's lime for the marinade. With simple salt & pepper it added up to a tasty piece of chicken. Not sweet at all, not too tart, just nice. I did make an error so had to adapt to fit. Mistakenly I thawed bone in chicken thighs instead of boneless breasts so I adapted. I marinated the chicken then rolled in panko crumbs for a crispy coating. I served the salsa on the side for dipping & skipped the cheese. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2010.
