"This is fantastic, i grabbed it for safekeeping, from Pamela at food. I make it often, always two batches, one for the next night and one to have ready in the freezer. Just take it out in the morning to defrost and it marinates at the same time."

I didn't freeze my chicken, but let it marinade 24 hours. It turned out very "limey"....not sure if my limes were larger than normal or if I marinated too long. I did use the garlic and ginger. Had to use the oven because I don't have a grill right now....think a grill would have really made this recipe. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag game.

Good chicken which we enjoyed. Skipped the garlic but otherwise made as directed. I didn't freeze the chicken - just marinated it in the fridge for a few hours. Thanks for sharing!
