My nephew CJ and I made this moist and delicious chicken for Dinner and Dominos night. It was a big hit!

Juicy and tender, this grilled chicken has a Mexican flair. The citrus isn't a noticeable flavor but it helps to tenderize the chicken breasts. When it's grilling season, this is an easy recipe anyone can make. We served the chicken with Mexican rice for a delightful and easy meal. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
