We absolutely loved this chicken! I followed the recipe exactly, and marinated it over night. It was a bit sour, but that was what we loved about it!

This recipe made the chicken extremely sour, I think that I would cut back on the lemon juice.

we couldn't really taste the seasoning. maybe next time we'll add more or let it marinate longer.

so fast and so easy! I used fresh lime juice because it's what I had on hand and it was fantastic. If you are looking for a great, simple dish, this is the one!
