I made this tonight and it was yummy! Next time, I'll let the chicken marinate for longer (although even at only 3 minutes or so, it still had nice flavor) because I love lime-flavored chicken. And as an avacado lover, the salsa on top was delicious. It reminded me of something you'd get in Mexico or the Caribbean. Thanks for the recipe!
