I love it
and so does my husband. I make it on a regular
basis. It is not identical but it sure is close.
Instead of crunching up the chips, I use fresh
corn tortilla shells, cut them in strips and fry
them. Tastes great. Thanks for the recipe.
have any Tequila on hand and I didn't have the
full time for the chicken to marinade, but the
dish turned out wonderful anyway. The meat had a
very distinct taste and it wasn't to hot for me.
I loved this and so did my picky Hubby.
family enjoyed this recipe. It tasted very
similar to the one served at Applebees. I
wouldn't use Miracle Whip in it again because the
Miracle Whip has too strong of a flavor.
yummy!! Worth the little effort, absolutely
amazing flavor! Has quickly become my husband's
very very favorite!
Miracle Whip, I agree. I doubled the recipe so I
used a 3/4 can of rotel for the tomato mix in
sauce. Everyone loved it!
this for my in-laws and they could not stop
talking about it...I recommend this to anyone who
is a fan of spicy chicken!
even better than the restaurant version. My very
picky husband loved it!!! This is the man who
won't eat cheese and he gobbled it up!!!
recipe. I used store-bought Mexican style dip for
chips instead of making the Mexican ranch sauce.
It made it very quick and easy. Quote from my
husband "don't forget how you made
My husband, who hates chicken breasts, went back
for seconds! I will definitely fix this again and
will also fix the white sauce just for snacking.
I didn't even use tequila and we still loved the
this 2 times already, once for my husband and
once for may parents. It is sooo delicious.
Exactly like Applebee's. OUTSTANDING RECIPE!
I made the
recipe last night for the first time! I wanted to
tell you that it was incredible! My whole family
couldn't get enough! Thank you!
this was great and I also cut up tortilla shells
into small strips and fryed them in the deep
fryer as another reader suggested.
this recipe and it was very good. Instead of
making the sauce, I mixed ranch dressing with
salsa and it was very good...much easier!!
I made your Tequila Lime
Chicken last night for my boyfriend. He absolutely loved it and said
it tasted almost exactly the same! I think that's the most detailed
thing I've ever cooked but it turned out really well. I used the
pico de gallo recipe for the salsa instead and that worked really
well. The scour cream/mayo sauce was excellent for dipping. Thank
you so much! Ill be making this a few times a month.
This is a GREAT recipe! I
like mayo better than Miracle Whip but that's up to the individual
tastes. I have used this recipe with giant shrimp and/or prawns and
it's turned out just as fabulous! Instead of chunky salsa try two
cans of diced tomatoes with jalepanos and lime chunks.
Seriously one of the best
chicken recipes that I have ever tried! We are hooked and so are my
parents! Love, love, love it!
We absolutely love this
recipe!! We have made it for several families and they love it too!
We have been making the sauce to eat with rice whenever we have a
mexican dish, we even like it on tortilla chips.
This has become one of
our family favorites! I make my own corn chips by frying sliced corn
tortillas in long thin strips.
This recipe is great! I
did make the spicy sauce, but it was a little too bland, so I added
2 table spoons of Kraft's Zesty Ranch dressing and a sprinkle of
salt. It really made the flavors pop! Thanks for such a great
Excellent recipe. At
least as good as Applebee's (maybe better). I omitted the tequila
and used 3 limes instead of 2. Did not have salsa on hand so used 3
T of Rotel instead. Second time I added an extra chicken breast
which I grilled only and used later in quesadillas. Excellent
I tried the recipe the
other night and was surprised how much it compares to the Applebees
version. However i did not use the tequila and I substituted the
cajun spice with taco mix seasoning(2 tsp. instead on 1. I actually
found tortilla strips at the store by Fresh Gourmet which was a
quick shortcut!! Will definately make again!
WOW, this was seriously
better than the real thing. i think the brown sugar is the key to
its success! :)
When I prepared it, I
couldn't wait to try it. It was good, but I was a little disapointed,
he marinate seemed too strong. (I left it in for 10 hours) next
time, I'll probably marinate it for NO MORE than 4 hours. I also
used thin cuts of breats, so If you use thin cuts, don't marinate
for more than 2. I will try again!Thanks for all the great recipes!
My husband loved this
recipe. A keeper for sure! Didn't use the tequila but tasted great
We have had Applebee's
chicken and it was one of our favorites. We thought this was better,
our homemade chicken is not as dry. You also have a choice of more
salsa than they give you. My husband's remark was I had hit a
homerun maybe a grand slam. It will be a company recipe also. i did
take some shortcuts with already made Spanish rice and Southwest dip
you get in the dairy case which I added some creole seasoning to. It
only took the time to cook the chicken to fix. Quick and Easy!
Dead on ringer for the
Applebee's, however I discovered that the 'original' uses 3/4 cup
Tequila in the marinade. I'm not big on tequila, but actually
preferred the dish when I used the more generous amount in the
marinade -- YOU MUST TRY THIS!!!!
I had this meal at
applebees the other night, loved it so much that I wanted to make it
on my own. Not only was it the same...but a lot cheaper and fed four
people. I thank you so much for fulfilling my craving and being so
good at what you do. Its identical!!!
this is a great recipe..i shared it
with others..i am making it again tonight for my family and my son
who has been at college and missed it last time..it is delicious
We absolutely loved it! I did use the
suggestion to slice up tortilla chips and fry them-----awesome,
much better than bagged tortilla chips. I did add over twice the
amount of brown sugar, to my taste. I did not use a regular grill,
broiled, in the oven, one side 8 minutes, the other side was done
in about 3, then I added the salsa mixture and cheese and finished
until golden brown.
me and my husband love this
recipe:)But the sauce we make it out of sour cream and taco
seasoning its easier
Definitely don't skimp on the Tequila.
It even pays to multiply the called-for amount by several times,
as someone already suggested. Also, the first few times I made
this, I used a frying pan instead of a grill... MUCH better on an
