These savory marinated chicken strips are great for a picnic or backyard barbecue. I grill them right along with sausages and hot dogs. Skewering the chicken makes it easy to handle, but you can put the strips directly on the grill or broil them in the oven if you prefer. -Marion Lowery, Medford, Oregon

"I thought this was very bland. It should be marinated 6 hours or overnight. I did prepare in the oven due to the extreme wind. The thyme was very overpowering. I will not attempt this again."

"My husband and I thought that this recipe was outstanding! I marinated the chicken for 6 hours instead of 1 and reduced the amount of cumin to 1/2 tsp. I will definitely be making this again!"

"This is an all-time favorite for our family for years. The only thing I do different is use 1 1/2 lb. chicken. The flavor is unique and delicious! I make it with the Warm Mustard Potato salad on this website."
