Like others, I was worried about 8 hours in lime juice "cooking" the chicken. It was not an issue at all. I had smallish breast pieces, thin like cutlets, so it only took 1/2 cup lime juice and one Tbl oil to cover them with the marinade. I used the full amount of spices but I feel like once the meat's "surrounded" any additional liquid is just wasted. I marinated the full 8 hours, turning the bag a couple of times and then grilled them, which didn't really lend to shredding so I sliced it for tacos. The lime flavor is pretty strong but we like lime and chicken is so boring. I don't think I would prefer this just as a piece of chicken but in the tacos or on a salad the lime really adds to the dish, in my opinion. I made this for recipe group, good pick.
