Super Fajita Marinade
I like to initially follow recipes to the tee, and so I did with this. I read other reviews just to see what I may expect, good or bad, and found that like most reviewers, this recipe is QUITE heavy on the lime! Even after letting the chicken marinate for about 5 hours, the lime was exceptionally strong. I like a blend of flavors. The marinade eventually kind of thickens, after hours of sitting and cooking, but I think it needs a slight thickening agent (flavored or unflavored). It is very watered down. I would suggest decreasing the lime by half. Also, the writer said to add in coriander and cilantro - which are the same thing, essentially.
I did not use anise seed, as we wanted a spicier marinade as opposed to any sweetness.
