Lime Chicken

Sundays are usually the days I like to prepare some special dish (well… not all Sundays though….haha). Today I prepared a very simple yet delicious recipe. I used lime as the main flavor imparting ingredient for this dish. The dish takes only about half an hour to prepare. So you won’t miss out on your favorite Sunday movies, and yet be able to prepare a lovely meal for your family.

It’s summer and a tangy flavor is something I prefer during this season. Do you? 🙂
