  2. Drain; discard marinade. Grill, uncovered, over medium-low heat, turning occasionally, for 10-12 minutes or until juices run clear. If desired, top each chicken breast with a slice of cheese and grill 1-2 minutes longer or until cheese begins to melt. Serve on rolls with tomato, onion and lettuce. Yield: 6 servings.

"These were very tender, moist chicken breasts, but I didn't detect ANY of the marinade ingredient flavors upon eating. Perhaps it was because I only had time to marinate for just over 6 hours. I would try it again when I could marinate overnight."

"I agree with the other reviewers on this. I made as specified. turned out ok, not bad. We have better marinades than this one. At times, I thought the poultry season was a tad too strong."

"This wasn't bad, it just didn't suit my family's tastes. We've had many other marinated chicken recipes we've liked far more."

"great just as is! I never change anything the first time around. otherwise how can you honestly rate a recipe?? Some of the comments look like whole new recipes. Why don't folks just submit the changes they made as a new recipe ??"
