      Yum Yum. Love the flavor of this chicken and done on the grill....well,....say no more. I did add a little more than a teaspoon of lemon pepper to the marinade as well. Lovely lemony taste~

      I think I would eat chicken no matter with what they were basted, slathered or whatever. Almost forgot...this caused much joyosity in my household. That is, if there's such a word. Made for A-NZ #46.

      Mmmm!!! what a very nice dinner this made, I made it to the recipe with no changes and marinaded for two hours. What a great find. I liked that you added the marinade almost at the end of cooking it made a nice sauce. I will be making this again. I served it with Zucchini/ Courgettes Sauteed With Sun-Dried Tomatoes#413205 and the two went well together. thank you for posting.
