"Very tasty, but I recommend piercing the chicken a little so the marinade can get down into it."

"We like to rent a cabin when we travel to The Smokey Mountains & use the grill provided there. So I like to prepare my meats in the marinades & freeze ahead of time. This was definitely a favorite! Even my 13 yr. old who is an extremely picky eater asks for this again. Delicious is an understatement!"

"I didn't tell my picky eaters what was in the marinade (they don't like Caesar dressing OR mustard of any kind) or they wouldn't have eaten it. Everyone at the table rated this chicken a 5 out of 5 and requested seconds. Excellent and EASY recipe!"

"I am making this recipe for the 2nd time tonight. Everyone loved it the first time. I add a little bit of sugar to the marinade to cut the tartness slightly."

"I made this tonight and I changed it up a bit. Instead of grilling, I coated in seasoned bread crumbs and baked. I wanted to give it the 'crouton effect' and it tasted pretty good! I used fat free dressing, added fresh cracked black pepper, and next time I think I'll use a little less Dijon as a matter of personal taste. The kids even liked it!"
