"I invented this recipe for a quick dinner. I only marinated the chicken for one hour, but I am sure if you marinate longer, it would taste even better."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This recipe was delicious! I followed it exactly and doubled it so I'd have enough to marinate all the veggies in. I didn't exactly taste either the chili or the lime, I just tasted that it was delicious! My husband said he could definitely taste the chili though. I wouldn't recommend marinating it longer than 4 or 5 hours though b/c I marinated for 4 and the chicken was starting to fall apart...the combination of lime juice and vinegar really breaks down the chicken quickly!
I flubbed this so I am giving a 1 star meal (we ate something else for dinner instead), 3 stars to account for my mistake. I marinaded these for about 6 hours (using the juice from one fresh lime) but I still don't think that is long enough to get the good flavor that other reviewers have achieved. I was working w/ a new gas grill & I greatly overcooked them. But, as Michelle said, there wasn't enough flavor & what flavor did come through...was predominately chili powder. I added mushrooms & bell peppers to my skewers in hopes of making it a complete meal but I didn't marinade them (I don't think the lime would complement the mushrooms) & was afraid to add seasonings for fear of competing w/ the chicken marinade. The result...completely flavorless veggies that didn't add a thing to the dish. I don't know if I will ever try this dish again, I'm thinking that even if I had not overcooked it, that it still wouldn't have enough flavor for me ...sorry.
10 stars for sure..This marinade was fabulous. The only changes were I doubled the recipe and added 3 limes opposed to two(for which I used a glass lemon juicer to get all the juice possible and the pulp), some zest from one lime and instead of garlic powder I went with a fresh clove minced and I also added in some fresh cilantro for our taste preference. Marinaded for 3 or so hours and I couldn't eat enough pieces. YUMMY! The perfect amount of lime and chili taste. Will be making often this summer. Thanks!
I did not make kabobs with this; instead, I marinated 4 chicken breasts overnight in the marinade and broiled these. They were really good and tender with a nice kick to them.
I have made this so many times I habve lost count. Great on the BBQ or if it;s to cold outside I broil (but watch it not to close to the top)I have also cooked in a skillet if I am in a real hurry. Try cooking with tomatoe peppers and pineapple chunks on skewers, my daughter par boiled potatoe then put that on a skewer with the chicken brushed the potatoe with butter great for a picnic.
These are definitely more spicy than flavorful and come out very moist. I marinated these for 6 hours and skewered the chicken with red and green peppers, onions and cherry tomatoes. Next time I think I'll use crushed garlic vs. garlic powder, and increase the amount of lime juice for a bit more citrus flavor. Overall, it was very good served with southwestern rice. If you like spicy food, try this one.
Made this vinaigrette a few weeks ago and will be making it again tomorrow night. I subbed Key Lime Juice and a clove of crushed garlic. Marinated chicken, shrimp and veggies (green & yellow squash, green & red peppers, cherry tomatos, mushrooms and pineapple chunks) before tossing them all on the grill. Thanks.
oh my goodness-someone please make my parents stop telling me how good this was!!!I made this on Memorial Day and they haven't stopped foaming at the mouth for them since.Not only a keeper but a staple at every picnic from here to the end of time for my Mom and Dad apparently.Thanks for a great recipe-you helped me win over some tough critics!!!
