Honey Lime Dressing... or is it a Basting Sauce?

Honey Lime Dressing

I am going to share one of my favorite salad dressing recipes with you tonight.  This dressing isn’t just for lettuce.  I no longer call it a “dressing” but a sauce.

Tonight I marinated the boneless, skinless chicken breasts in 4 oz of the Braswell Key Lime Margarita Sauce*

I added a shot of Tequila to the marinade.  Of course I did.  ;.)

After one hour, I sprinkled the chicken with grill seasoning for steak.   I tossed the chicken on an oiled grill and cooked the chicken breasts to 175°, until the juices ran clear.  During the last five minutes, I basted the chicken with this wonderful dressing/basting sauce.  I topped it all off with crisped up corn tortilla strips sprinkled with Garlic Salt and Chili Powder.
