I have used this recipe for a couple years now and love it everytime! I have friends that have asked me for it as well. The only problem I have is using only a 1/4 cup of beer and then the rest gets wasted because I always start the marinade in the a.m. So, I have learned to make a large batch of the marinade. I freeze it with my chix breasts and also bags of cut-up peppers for my future fajitas. I just pull it out in the a.m. to thaw and it's ready to grill by the time I get home.

I thought this marinade was really good. I added a little more of all the spices and a couple more cloves of garlic, marinated 2 chicken breasts (cut up) in the fridge for about an hour. Then I cooked the chicken, some onion and red pepper IN the marinade. I didn't give it 5 stars because I've had better, but all in all a good recipe and I would probably make again. Thanks!!

My husband and son thought it was good. I think it would be a good marinade for chicken, then I would have given it 5/5, actually I wanted to give it 4 1/2 out of 5. It was tangy with the citrus flavors. As for a fajita, I'm used to having fajita's for beef, chicken and shrimp with the usual fajita flavor(like my favorite resturant). It would be better in a category for just citrus marinade for chicken.

I followed the recipe exact. I let my meat marinate for an hour. With lime juice, you have to watch it or it'll cook your chicken. This was good, but I feel it could have used a bit more cumin. And something else I couldn't put my finger on. I'd use this again and double the spice.

This was so good. It was hard to part with a 1/4 cup of my beloved beer but I followed exact. I cut my chicken into strips before marinating and then grilled them. I would grill them if possible. I will definately use this marinade again.

This was great. I added cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, oregano, cayenne, paprika, and S&P.

Very good. I grilled my chicken and moistened the chicken with the marinade each time I turned it. I will use this recipe again.
