We let the chicken marinate for the afternoon, and it was sooo moisty and flavorful. The fiance said the marinade smelled a little funky, though, so I've got to give this recipe four stars. I think the garlic was the cause of the strange smell, so I might leave that out next time (and I truly love garlic!). We'll see. Thanks for a great recipe! We'll be using this one again. :)

I've had this recipe long before I found it on here and I love it! So nice and easy and light, especially for summer. I serve it with some southwest rice and grilled zucchini.

I had 3 chicken breasts to use and thought I would try this recipe. I followed the direction exactly and added a whole lime that I had sliced into 4 slices. Things got crazy at our house Wednesday so we didn't get to grill them until last night after they had marinated for 48 hours. These were so tender, moist and flavorful. Everyone really enjoyed them. They were not tart, nor sweet, but had a perfect combination of flavors. Thanks for a great recipe...I will be making this one again.
