Fiesta Lime Chicken
Here is a copycat recipe for the Fiesta Lime Chicken at Applebee’s restaurant. This dish consists of marinated grilled chicken that is topped with a slightly spicy sauce, cheese, and Pico de Gallo. The chicken is marinated in ingredients such as teriyaki sauce and lime juice. The sauce gets a lot of its flavor from salsa, hot sauce, and Cajun seasoning. You can use less Cajun seasoning if you are not a fan of spicy foods. The Pico de Gallo is just a simple combination of tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno pepper, salt and lime juice. The best method to cook the chicken is on an outdoor grill but an indoor grill pan will work as well. You can serve this recipe with tortilla chips and rice. Enjoy.
