A wonderful citrusy marinade makes this chicken tangy and tasty. A few hours before dinner, simply marinate the chicken for a fuss-free meal later on.—Lisa Dougherty, Vacaville, California

"This doesn't do anything to make grilled chicken moister, but seems even drier. The only way it tastes good is putting it on a sandwich with some cheese."
