I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Fiesta Lime Chicken

I love this recipe.  Just enough kick of lime to it.   A little spicy with the sauce.  I did not have colored corn chips so I used black.  It was still yummy.

(serves 4)

*1 cup water
*1/3 cup teriyaki sauce (I make my own)
*1/2 lime, juiced
*3 cloves garlic, minced
*1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
*4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
*1/4 cup real mayonnaise
*1/4 cup sour cream
*2 tablespoons chunky salsa
*1 tablespoon milk
*1/2-1 teaspoon cajun blackening spice
*1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
*1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
*1/8 teaspoon dried dill weed
*1/8 teaspoon cumin
*1 1/2 cups colby jack cheese, shredded
*2 cups multi-colored corn chips, crumbled

~Whisk the water, teriyaki sauce, lime juice, minced garlic, liquid smoke, salt & ginger together.
~Place chicken breasts & marinade into a zip-loc bag and marinade for at least 2 hours.
~Whisk mayonnaise, sour cream, salsa, milk, cajun seasoning, parsley, hot sauce, dill weed & cumin together.
~Cover bowl, and chill until ready to use.
~Remove chicken from marinate and discard marinade.
~Grill chicken for 4-6 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
~Brush grilled chicken with mayonnaise mixture.
~Sprinkle cheese over chicken and mayonnaise mixture.
~Broil in oven until melted.
