Chicken/ Dinner

Fiesta Lime Chicken

There’s something satisfying about making food that tastes as good or better than what you can get at a restaurant. I guess that’s why copycat recipes and cookbooks are so popular.

One of the nice things about making the food yourself is that you can customize it to your taste. It also tends to be far less expensive when you make it. So, with that in mind, I give you my version of Fiesta Lime Chicken
