Mexi-Lime Grilled Chicken


Whipped this beauty up last night with ingredients we just had laying around and it was DELISH!

Many of you requested the recipe, so I wanted to make sure I got this up on the blog ASAP for you guys! Highly encourage you to make this one - it was a family fav!

If you have kiddos who can't do spice, or if you're just sensitive to spiciness yourself, use the MILD Rotel instead of the Mexican one and of course choose MILD salsas, etc wherever you see that in the recipe. You control the heat in this one :)

Hope you and your family love this one as much as we did!
