grilled cajun lime chicken

Mmmm! You gotta love grilling in the summer.  Nothing beats the barbequed taste of food that has been thrown on the grill.  I love the flavor of lime and it brings just the right balance to this Cajun chicken.  Cilantro gives it a nice, extra zing, but sometimes in a pinch I add parsley.  Just slap this chicken on the grill with some corn on the cob, and  you’re taste buds will be saying mmmm, delicious!
