  • Grilling Tip
  • Be patient and attentive with skin-on bone-in chicken. Turn frequently and move the chicken pieces around on the grill to monitor hot spots and account for chicken pieces of different thickness. The results will be worth it!

I have only made this with chicken breasts but it is AWESOME. It is one of my all time favorites. The longer you marinate the better it is! I usually just use the oil, limes & garlic. Yummy! I also like to slice the breasts & use with grilled veggies for fajitas!

This was very tasty. I didn't have limes, so used lemons. Didn't have lawry's seasoned pepper, so used fresh pepper. This is definitely a recipe to make over and over. Will get lawry's seasoned pepper to try with this recipe, but, I can't see how it would taste any better. Delicious!

My family liked this recipe. The chicken was very moist and flavorful, however very, very salty. I used bottled lime juice in the bag and used fresh limes to squeeze on the chicken while cooking. I will make this recipe again. Thanks-

One word-DELICIOUS! This was a huge hit at our house, even my 4, 6 and 10 year olds loved it! I used regular pepper, and garlic powder with the olive oil, lime, and seasoned salt. This will be at the front of my recipe box for sure!!!!!Thanks for a great recipe.

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! This recipe is outstanding! It is quite simple and yet the taste is incredible. My family prefers boneless skinless chicken breasts and I don't typically have "seasoned pepper" on hand, so I just use regular ground black pepper. Thanks for an AWESOME way to grill chicken!

This is a favorite recipe in my family. The only thing I do differently is to use 2 cornish game hens quartered. They are wonderful and take just 25 minutes. I grill for 5 minutes, then turn every 5 minutes, squeezing the limes and sprinkling with Garlic Salt. Last night I had to use chicken pieces and I didn't think it was as tasty as the cornish hens.

Excellent flavor with the lime. I cooked the chicken over the stove and it was fantastic!
