"I invented this recipe for a quick dinner. I only marinated the chicken for one hour, but I am sure if you marinate longer, it would taste even better."

This recipe was delicious! I followed it exactly and doubled it so I'd have enough to marinate all the veggies in. I didn't exactly taste either the chili or the lime, I just tasted that it was delicious! My husband said he could definitely taste the chili though. I wouldn't recommend marinating it longer than 4 or 5 hours though b/c I marinated for 4 and the chicken was starting to fall apart...the combination of lime juice and vinegar really breaks down the chicken quickly!

10 stars for sure..This marinade was fabulous. The only changes were I doubled the recipe and added 3 limes opposed to two(for which I used a glass lemon juicer to get all the juice possible and the pulp), some zest from one lime and instead of garlic powder I went with a fresh clove minced and I also added in some fresh cilantro for our taste preference. Marinaded for 3 or so hours and I couldn't eat enough pieces. YUMMY! The perfect amount of lime and chili taste. Will be making often this summer. Thanks!

I did not make kabobs with this; instead, I marinated 4 chicken breasts overnight in the marinade and broiled these. They were really good and tender with a nice kick to them.
