Quick Florida Keys Style Citrus Chicken

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by NorthwestGal

This is a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens. It's a quick dinner (ready in less than half an hour) that's great for summertime barbecues. It's a speedy version of the classic dish that doesn't require hours of marinating time, and it's still just as delicious.

This couldn't be easier or more flavorful. I loved the strong citrus flavor.
