Wonderful recipe! Enjoy this and hope others will find it as interesting a flavor mix. I love chicken, rice, and lime...so it was a natural hit. In the future, I will leave out the corn, as it didn't do anything for me...kind of distracted me from the rest of the flavors, but it was still easy to make and tasted great. I have shared this in my new weekly hub, "My Favorite Recipes This Week."
