If You like Lime, You'll Love This Lawry's Marinade; the Mexican Chile & Lime Marinade Adds a Citrus Flavor to Food

Lawry's Mexican Chile & Lime Marinade is all about the lime. Members of the Times-Union Consumer Panel used the spicy citrus-flavored sauce to marinate, baste and sometimes dip chicken and other meats. The bottle also suggests trying it on tacos and fajitas or putting it into a stir-fry.

Peeters marinated chicken in the sauce and made them into shish kebabs with pineapple, onions and peppers.

Although she liked the fact that the Lawry's is supposed to be a 30-minute marinade, Peeters said, "I don't think that's enough. We marinated the chicken for about an hour and then used the marinade to baste the shish kebabs while they cooked."

"I'd mostly use it when barbecuing on the grill," he said. "We all agree we'd buy it again."

Retired accountant Jim Proctor described the Mexican Chile & Lime Marinade as having just enough lime and a moderate amount of heat.

He used it to marinate a cut-up chicken, which he baked. …
