Chipotle Lime Chicken

DSC_0823

I love this recipe.  It is fast, easy, and versatile.  It can be eaten by itself, on a salad (such as this salad here), in a wrap, or in a burrito/taco.  PLUS, it is healthy!  What else could a girl ask for?  If you don’t like chipotle pepper, you can leave it out.  It taste great without it.

 This month, I want to make an effort to get outside more.  Typically the weather is nice during the month of May, and I want to take advantage of it for myself and for my kids.  Plus, I have a lot of yard work to do, so I am hoping this goal will give me the motivation to get out and pull some weeds, plant my garden, and plant some flowers.
