Applebee’s Fiesta Lime Chicken

This is my favorite dish from Applebee’s and Beau decided to try and make it for me for our anniversary.  It was the yummiest thing I’ve had in a long time ( I think it was even better than the one from Applebee’s).  He also cooked a side of spanish rice which was a nice flavor to add to the meal.  I’m definitely going to have him make this again in the near future.  I really wish I had a better camera(webcamera doesn’t work very well) so that you could see how good this really looked.

1 cup water

1/3 cup teriyaki sauce

1/2 cup lime juice

1 tsp of garlic powder 

1 teaspoon liquid smoke

1/2 teaspoon salt

 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

4 boneless chicken breasts

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup sour cream 

 1 tablespoon Milk 

 1 teaspoon cajun blackening spice

1/4 teaspoon dried parsley

 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce

1/8 teaspoon cumin

2 tablespoons Spicy, Chunky Salsa

1 cup shredded colby jack cheese

2 cups corn chips – crumbled


Whisk together the first 7 ingredients, coat chicken in mixture, and marinade for at least 4 hours. Whisk together the next 7 ingredients, cover, and chill until needed. Grill the marinated chicken breasts for 3-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.  Use the marinade to coat the bottom of the pan when cooking. Brush grilled chicken with chilled mixture,sprinkle with cheese, and broil until cheese has melted. Serve the chicken over a bed of crumbled chips and add salsa to the top as much as preferred.
