"Wonderful marinade that makes the chicken flavorful and moist for grilling. Perfect for those boneless skinless chicken breasts! Prep time doesn't include time to marinate. Adapted from Lyuba's recipe at willcookforsmiles.com."

Zest and juice limes, reserving half a lime to slice for garnish.
Place all ingredients for marinade into the bag, close it and squeeze to mix.
Add chicken, close bag and squish to evenly spread marinade.
Marinate for several hours. The longer you marinate it, the better it will taste.
