I used 6 chicken breasts, but only doubled the marinade recipe. It seemed to be plenty. This was really good, but not quiet as good as the Applebee's dish, we think it was something in the dressing, maybe too much salsa, next time I will taste it before using it.
Applebee's Fiesta Lime Chicken (From: Redrocksunshine)
- 1 (5 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 1/4 cup tequila (non-alcoholic may be used)

- 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar jack cheese
Set oven to broil.
To prepare chicken, pour lime juice and tequila into a sealable plastic bag. Place chicken in bag and chill. Marinate chicken overnight.
- 1 tablespoon salsa

Remove chicken from marinade and grill over medium heat 10 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. While chicken cooking, mix together dressing recipe.
To assemble: Scatter tortilla chips on an oven-safe plate. Place chicken on top of tortilla chips.
Pour Mexi-ranch dressing over chicken. Cover with the shredded Cheddar jack cheese.
Place chicken under the broiler until cheese is melted. Be careful, plate will be hot!
