      I was looking for a tequila lime chicken recipe that I had made before. It had gotten rave reviews from everyone. I didn't have a lot of time to search, so when I came across this one I thought I'd try it instead. DH and I thought this was good, but DD didn't like it at all.

      The chicken was good and light. Although I thought it was a little on the bland and dry side. But maybe it was because I used boneless and skinless chicken breast. Thank you.
