    Might as well have marinated in straight lime juice, tasted like nothing else. Bland limey chicken.

    Great marinade base. I added about 1/2tsp of cayenne pepper and 1/2tsp of chili pepper to spice it up a little. I suggest cutting the raw chicken into strips before marinating. You get more surface area for the marinade and it grills much faster. Also gets a nice char on each piece. So good!

    My son is disable and tacos are difficult to eat...so I turned this into a taco salad with a lime vinaigrette! Yummy. After making this a couple of times, we decided we would like a little salt in the marinade...so added that and it was perfect for us! Thanks for the great recipe. It is now a permanent part of our rotation...so refreshing and light.

    The only reason I give it 4 stars is because I didn't try it (I'm a vegetarian). It was clearly a winner with 4 boys aged 7-10 and 44 years old. They devoured it and my "picky eater" commented on the sweetness/tanginess of the lime. I only marinated for 3 hours and didn't measure anything but used all liquids/spices included in the recipe. I'll definitely make this again and actually measure and wait overnight. I'm not the best about pre-planning!
