      This is a very easy recipe to follow. I thought it was a little bland.

      This was quick and easy, and we had all the ingredients. We found it lacked flavour, so would probably double the lime and cilantro if we made it again.

      I was expecting this chicken to be packed with flavor, and sadly it had none. It was good, but I have tried other recipes that have a lot more flavor. I don't think I will try this again, sorry.
