Cilantro Lime Chicken Sandwich was fun lunch for our family today… it would even be good as a main dish with rice and veggies on the side too!  SO many options for this yummy recipe 🙂

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and getting all those Saturday things done, at our house the list of stuff never ends!  I should be making jam right now but we still need to find some raspberries… if you want to try our family’s most favorite jam in world here’s a link- Peach Raspberry Jam!


Happy Cooking!
