Applebee's Fiesta Lime Chicken Ingredients

2 cups tortilla chips, crumbled
1 cup Montery jack, colby, or mild cheddar cheese cheese, shredded
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
1 cup water
2 1/2 Tablespoons lime juice
2 Teaspoons garlic
1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon ground ginger
16 ounces sour cream

Applebee's Fiesta Lime Chicken Recipe

  1. Clean chicken and rinse.
  2. Combine teriyaki sauce, water, lime juice, garlic smoked paprika, salt and ginger in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Opt for fresh lime juice over prepared lime juice for optimal flavor.
  3. Stir marinade until the salt dissolves in the liquid.
  4. Place chicken in marinade and ensure all sides are coated.
  5. Top bowl with plastic wrap and place in a refrigerator.
  6. Flip chicken in marinade after an hour.
  7. Remove chicken after a total of 2 hours marinading.
  8. Combine sour cream and the fiesta ranch seasoning packet in a small mixing bowl. Stir to incorporate the sauce. Refrigerate as needed.
  9. Preheat oven to a high broil.
  10. Preheat grill to high.
  11. Grill each chicken for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until done.
  12. Place chicken on a baking sheet, then coat each with a layer of the dressing mixture.
  13. Top each chicken piece with a thick layer of shredded cheese. If you want to lower calories, minimize the amount of cheese used.
  14. Place baking sheet in the oven and broil for about 3 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly.
  15. Plate chicken on a half-cup of tortilla strips.
  16. Serve chick with flavored rice and fresh pico de gallo.
