      I was disappointed. All I could taste was the lime juice!

      SO GOOD!! We all loved this chicken! I used breasts only, and I also increased the garlic. ( Just personal tastes) This was pretty easy to do, and was a wonderful "fiesta style" version of Fried Chicken. Thanks so much for sharing! Made for World Tour.
