It’s been awhile since I’ve put up a recipe in the blog, hasn’t it?

This weekend, I was perusing Snapchat.

*Shameless plug*


(Yep, I’m on Snapchat. Follow me: Fueledxrunning)
*Shameless plug end*

As I was saying, I was on Snapchat and one of my snap friends made a garlic lime chicken off the top of his head.
I watched snap after snap of him put his ingredients together and I was like, “Hey, I can make that too!”

So I did…the next day!



This recipe is a first draft of sorts. I’ve only made it one time. I plan to improve it but everyone kept asking me how I made it so I figured I would share my recipe.
It’s fairly simple and inexpensive.
