CORRECTED RECIPIE Instead of using 4 limes use two and instead of using 3 cloves of garlic use 4. Absolutely amazing and delicious - 4 limes would DEFINETLY be too much. Also - make sure you marinade for 20 minutes and not a second longer. Read More

I made a couple changes and the result was as good as any chicken I've gotten at a restarant. I omitted the lime because it just didn't sound good and just used sesame oil (for more asian flavor) chopped garlic chopped ginger and some ground peppercorn. Very very good. Smelled so wonderful while cooking. Make sure to use either fresh ginger or use the chopped ginger in a jar- it will stay fresh in the fridge for a long time. Read More

This is one of the easiest and most flavorful recipes I have ever made. Warning: if you don't like the taste of lime do not make this recipe though. The lime taste is very strong. I usually prefer to marinade my meat over night or longer if possible but decided to grill chicken at the last minute. This recipe was perfect marinade any longer that 20 minutes and the acid from the lime juice will start to cook the chicken. Read More

For simplicity alone this recipe gets four stars. I liked the fact that I already had all the ingredients in my kitchen too. I prepared the chicken on a George Foreman Grill and it was done in five minutes. I used bottled lime juice and olive oil gave it a nice flavor. I will use this recipe again when I'm in a hurry. This is a nice lowfat meal. I served it with fresh green beans and noodles. Thanks Susan! Read More

This was very good. I took some brown sugar and sprinkled it on top and then rubbed it in and broiled it. The sugar cut the tangyness of it. Read More

I love marinating chicken but usually it takes a whole day to get a good flavor. This took only twenty minutes and it was saturated with flavor. My boyfriend and I both loved it. I can't wait to make it for other people! Read More

Can you say Pinesol?! Marinated for about 1/2 an hour but waaaay too limey and I usually like strong tastes! My advice would be dilute the lime with water and add only 1 tbsp of ginger. Read More
