New Recipe :: Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Since we're all going through "Iceageddon" and a lot of people are trying new recipes, I thought I'd post my new favorite one. My friend Amber told me about this recipe for garlic lime chicken on, but I ended up using the wrong recipe ... but I REALLY liked the one I used. The chicken is spicy and flavorful and very juicy. After it was cooked, we sliced it up and put it in a tortilla with some cheese. Then Travis made his famous homemade guacamole to go with it. It was an amazing dinner! Let me know what you think.
