    Loved rthe zing from the lime! Used about 1 tsp of lime zest and added 1/2 tsp of hot pepper flakes to the recipe. I appreciated that the breasts were not cooked with a lot of oil. I just lightly sprayed a non stick skillet and they were done in no time lovely golden color and juicy. I marinated them in the fridge for about 6 hours. Great flavor I will make these again and next time I may try lemon juice & lemon zest., I always love lemon too Thanks Amber!

    I made it so hot it made me want to pull out my chest hair ...that I don't have. A total hit!

    Loved the flavors and the only change I made was to cut back on the ginger-personal preference. Marinate in a ziploc bag and flip a few times.

    Tasty! Different than our normal old boring chicken! My husband loved this and I liked it a lot. Loved how fresh the lime juice and cilantro made this taste.


I am a working mom of a beautiful little girl Keira Lynn. Watching her grow has been such a joy! My husband and I were married in May of 2006 on the beautiful island of Kauai. Since discovering this site, I have been cooking much more and have found some incredible recipes. I absolutely love to cook and try out new recipes, but have a handful of family favorites that I make quite often. My husband loves to cook as much as I do. To avoid anyone monopolizing the kitchen, we have to designate who gets to cook dinner in advance. He specializes in Asian cuisine and I love trying new healthy recipes. <a href=""><img border="0" src=""></a>
