    Proud Veteran's wife's Note:

    This comes from Better Homes & Gardens (celebrating the promise) I really like this chicken hope you do too! It has you broil it but I usually just bake at 350 for about 30 min. It also calls for 6 chicken breasts but can be reduced I usually only make about 3 due to my family size. Prep time is also marinating time.

      I HAVE to give this 5 stars b/c my husband is VERY picky and very rarely says he "LOVES" a recipe from this site even when I think most of them are delicious. He "LOVED" it.. The only thing I did different is I sprinkled feta cheese over the chicken when it was done b/c I felt it was missing something. I used 3 chicken breasts and split them in half to make thin filets..cooked it in the oven with all the marinade for about 20 minutes..turned out very juicy.. served w/a side of mashed potatoes...

      I've been making something close to this as I like the combination of the spices with the lime. Sure never fails! I used dried thyme here. It was also easy to prepare which is a plus. Thanks! Made for Fall PAC 2008.
