More lime juice. Try 3 limes. Taste the line before you use it. Sometimes they are bitter.

Less cilantro as an experiment. People with cilantro sensitivity usually describe it as soapy or metallic. Personally I'd use a lot more cilantro than your original recipe.

Check your oil to make sure it's not rancid and maybe use a bit less.

Oh my! Apple pie!: Pacific lime chicken

The dish needs more balance and some sweetness . I have posted a link to a recipe for Pacific Lime Chicken from Diana Henry's Cook Simple book . I have made it several times and it's a lovely dish .

I would skip the salt in the marinade. With only an hour's time marinating it doesn't have time to penetrate the meat. Once you take the chicken out of the marinade, salt the meat directly before baking/grilling it.

And me... I'd add MORE cilantro. But then again, I love the stuff.
