Pretty good! Needs just a little more Worchester sauce for flavor but it was nice that the lime was not over powering!

Delicious!!! I've made this a few times and it is absolutely wonderful. The only thing I changed was added extra lime juice :)

This recipe was AWESOME!! I served it with steamed broccoli tonight. Next time I will also serve it with brown rice to take advantage of the yummy honey lime sauce. It was a hit with my hubby and my son.

Delicious - made exactly to the recipe and could have eaten the whole lot! The kids had theirs on wraps with salad - win win in this household! :)

I loved the simplicity of this....I did some different things to it...I didn't use honey, but Lyle's Golden Syrup (a British import), I used True Lime crystals rather than juice... and I didn't flour the chicken before sauteing in butter...and added a tiny bit of Wondra flour after all ingredients were in the skillet to thicken....then I made rice to put the chicken over....the rice didn't help the calorie intake, but made a full meal!!! And it was DELISH!!!!

Just made this tonight. It was FANTASTIC. Definitely recommend it. I just switched out the honey for light Agave nectar.

Really quick meal - had mine with broccoli and spiced basmati rice. Cut the chicken into strips and pop on the broccoli to boil as well as setting the rice to cook. Quickly coat the chicken and cook whilst making the sauce. 10 minutes later - ready to eat. A 15 minute meal that is tasty, great flavours and a winner with all of the family. Cut the rice and have with salad in summer, or add some habanero and winter vegetables to eat as a winter warmer.
