  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar jack cheese
  • To prepare Mexi-ranch dressing,
  • in a small bowl mix:
  • 1 tablespoon salsa

  • Remove chicken from marinade and grill over medium heat 10 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.

This Is Almost Indentical To Applebee's Tequila LIme Chicken. LOVE It. We Ate There For The First Time In A Year Or So The Other Nite, And They Had New Menus - It's Fiesta Lime Chicken Now, But, The Same Thing. Serve With Spanish Rice And Pico De Gallo
