Anyone else find it strange to read 'Lime Teriyaki', instead of 'Teriyaki Lime'? I had that similar feeling when tasting this chicken for the first time too. The first couple bites were different; I've never tasted these flavor combinations together, or anything similar to it before. The more I ate it though the more I stopped being skeptical and realized I actually enjoyed it. Probably not the best way to describe a meal you enjoyed, but that is my honest review. I thought it paired pretty well with roasted sweet potatoes, but then again I kept asking myself all week if it would pair better with a rice/cauliflower rice combination. The hint of lime is definitely there and throws you off (or threw me off for sure). I almost wonder if it would pair well with roasted plantains or plantain chips. Either way, you can make this recipe in either the slow cooker or Instant Pot. I chose the Instant Pot this time around and doubled the ingredients to make enough food for meal prep. I also skipped out on the arrowroot starch and just put the Instant Pot on 'saute' mode to help thicken the sauce. If you are using the slow cooker option and don't have arrowroot starch, you can bring the extra sauce to a boil on the stove top to help thicken/reduce some. I know I say it after many of my posts, but if you try this one out please let me know what you think! This one obviously left me with quite the first impression, so I'd love to hear what others think.
