This was great! I would never have thought these ingredients would taste this way. I am a novice at mexican-inspired cooking, but this chicken tasted exactly like a friend's homemade chicken enc...

The whole family loved this! My kids even asked for seconds...Only change I made was using olive oil for 1/2 the butter and topping with sour cream instead of yogurt. This one's a keeper!

This was very good, I did make a few adjustments. Increased the lime a bit, topped with sour cream, and the best addition, added tequila to the marinade. Gives it a more authentic Mexican flair,...
