Chicken with Creamy Cilantro Lime Sauce | - Family, Friends & Food with Jayne


Welcome back! I’ve said it time and time again, I’m a busy woman. When I get home from work I don’t always have time to spend hours in the kitchen, and I have a feeling there are those of you out there who feel the same. So, I came across this quick 30 minute meal that I just had to share. It’s not only quick, but it is delicious and a nice healthy meal I can feed my family in under a half an hour. Try it and comment to my blog, I would love to hear what you think!
