this is good and easy. I cooked it in the oven, since it was too cold to grill.

Hubby liked it, which is always a winner as he is very picky. I had issues with my grill this night so it took twice as long to cook, will rate again next time i try it to see if that improves with a non-finicky grill nite.

This is a great meal. My whole family enjoyed it and it was so healthy. I served it with grilled asparagus also - yum!
