I marinated the chicken overnight in the refrigerator, then made kabobs with it for a party of 15... EVERYONE loved it and asked for the recipe. Thanks so much!

not a big fan of this one. I just didn't like the flavor of the marinade, and neither did my husband.

After reading the reviews for this recipe and seeing some say it was bland I made a couple changes. I zested the lime then juiced it. added 1 Tablespoon honey,I added 1/2 teaspoon of ground coriander instead of the cilantro as it is the seed of the cilantro and has about the same taste and mixes into the marinade easier. Chicken breast would be fine but I used thighs. This was great !

This was the most tender and juicy piece of chicken I've ever made! I followed the recipe exactly but marinated for about an hour. It was hard to tell how long to cook the chicken as the grill marks didn't take to it. Wonderful recipe!

I marinated it closer to an hour and added a garlic & onion seasoning blend to the marinade. This was delicious!!! The chicken was rather moist too! Will definitely be making this again!

Yum! I used two limes, three garlic cloves and two tsp. honey. We loved it!

This made a very moist grilled chicken, I only marinated it 30 minutes like the recipe called for and you could taste the beer.

I marinated the chicken for about 45 minutes. My husband and I both liked this even though we aren't big on garlic. The chicken turned out moist and had a nice flavor and aroma.
