You don't need high-fat ingredients to make this grilled chicken taste good. The marinade both flavors and tenderizes the meat. —Julie De Matteo, Clementon, New Jersey

MY REVIEW

I 'cheated' and used thighs and legs ... took the skin off and it was EXCELLENT; however would be easier to eat with BNLS chicken

Very nice flavor! I marinated the chicken for about 4 hours... it turned out great. Very easy. Will definitely make this again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2012

it as really good. But next time, I want to save some of the marinated from the chicken, cook it to kill any bacteria from the chicken, and sprinkle it over the chicken when it's done grilling, before serving. When I grilled the chicken I lost some of the flavor of the marinated.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 30, 2011

This is so flavorful. I am not good at

the charcoal grill, so I broiled it. I like to

serve it with Curried Pineapple Rice (Quick

Cooking), steamed broccoli, and Cocunut

Cream Pie (Quick Cooking) or Broiled

Bananas a la Mode (Taste of Home).
