With this dish I lemon zest instant of lime and curry powder instean of cumin, and WOOOOW! I served it with homemade refried beans and spanish rice, and that also just blew the roof off the house. This dinner tasted straight from a restruant. What a wonderful dish NovaLee. Thank you so much for posting this. I will be making it again.

Fabulous... I added more lime than the recipe calls for, but it is just like I remember the Chi-Chi's chicken!!! It is my favorite way to eat chicken.

This was very good. I am happy to find a different marninade for chicken. I served this at a back-yard barbeque and knew it was special when my 9-year old neighbor asked for more chicken instead of dessert! I'm looking forward to having the leftovers (which are few) tomorrow for lunch.

This was my second recipe choice for the 2nd "Pick Your Chef". The only thing I left out was the cumin, which I didn't have and didn't want to buy for just 1/2 tsp. Marinade smelled wonderful, and the chicken, once cooked, was very tasty. I'd like a stronger lime flavor, as opposed to the orange, so I think I would up the lime and reduce the orange next time. But this is a good light recipe and I would make it again. Note, I have not had the Chi-Chi's version, so I'm not comparing.
