Fiesta Lime Chicken  
This is probably my favorite chicken recipe, carpenyx !

Fiesta Lime Chicken

1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup lime juice
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp tequila
1 tsp liquid smoke
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tbsp spicy, chunky salsa
1tbsp milk
1tsp Cajun blackening spice
 1/4 tsp parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/8 tsp dried dill weed
1/8 tsp ground cumin
1 cup Colby jack cheese
2 cups crumbled corn chips

1. Whisk together the water, teriyaki, lime juice, garlic, tequila, liquid smoke, salt and ginger. Coat the chicken in mixture and marinated in the frig for at least 2 hours.

2. To prepare the dressing, whisk together the mayo, sour cream, salsa, milk, Cajun spice, parsley, Tabasco, dill, and cumin. Cover, and refrigerate until needed.

3. Preheat the broiler. Grill the marinated chicken for 3 to 5 minutes per side, until cooked through. Discard marinade.

4. Brush the grilled chicken with the chilled dressing, sprinkle with the cheese, and broil until the cheese had melted.

5. Serve the chicken over a bead of the crumbled chips.

Oh yay! I will definitely have to try this next time I get to the grocery store. :D It sounds so delicious. I'll let you know when I do it and how it turns out, which will probably be next week :)

It is so good. I haven't made this one but I've eaten it. I love this one so much. So worth trying. This is one I plan on making and storing some leftovers because it is too good not to have around.

Again this sounds delicious, but I have no idea what liquid smoke is, we don't have that here and nor do we have things like cajun blackening spice, or at least that is not common or something easy to find.

Me either. I've never made this one. Just eaten it.

My mom tells me you can get it near or with BBQ sauce. So I will be looking for it because this is a fav dish of mine.

You don't have the cajun spice in the spices at the market? Probably a US thing. I need to look for it because I don't have these things. I wonder if the cajun spice is just a mix of some other spices like Italian spice.

Gonna look into it.

Ah, okay, BBQ sauce I can get. Cajun food not really something that is that common here, so no probably not that easy to get it. There might be one place a massive market in London where one might be able to get something like it or near to it.

Yeah well if you go to that market and can find it let me know. Cause I would love for you to be able to try this stuff.

Also, because it is a spice and will probably last a while I would be willing to buy it. For some things I'm not at all willing. I need to check my spices because my mom gave us some when we moved and I could have it. *lol*

I will do. My friend Julie and I are probably going to go there in January, so will keep a look out for it and will let you know.

Yeah spices last a long time especially if they're in a sealed container.

Okay. I forgot to go looking yesterday. Had a lot on my mind.

Let me know if you find some too, when you get a chance that is. :)
