Reviews for Honey-Citrus Chicken Kabobs
"This was a great recipe. I thought the citrus helped keep the chicken moist. I added a little more garlic, too."
"This used way too much citrus and was kind of sour. It needs some herbs to flavor it as it was kind of blah. I won't make it again."
"This taste great. light and flavorful!"
