Spicy Lime Chicken

This zippy chicken dish is delicious to the taste buds and even better for the waistline.   My husband and I are trying to shed a few pounds before we go on a cruise and this recipe is perfect for the diet.  Just add some veggies or a salad and your good to go.  Kids love it too!
