Quick Marinated Grilled Chicken

“On hot summer days, this yummy chicken dish is a cinch to throw together without heating up the kitchen,” Missy Herr confirms from Quarryville, Pennsylvania. “Almost all of the ingredients are probably already on hand, so you can serve it any time.”

    I used chicken thighs as it's what I have on hand. My husband said two things to me about dinner: "I love my grill" and "That marinade is a keeper". Okay, into the recipe box it goes! Thanks for the recipe!

    I have been making this for years and this is one of my favorite marinated chicken recipes. End result is tangy goodness. I have made this for several large cookouts due to all the prep being done in advance.

    AMAZING! I did prepare this the night before with a large frozen chicken breast and cooked it for dinner the next night. My husband LOVED the flavor of this chicken and so did I.

    This was so nice and easy to put together. The end result tasted great. My husband and I both loved it and will be making it again.

    This was a really good marinade and gave the chicken a lot of flavor. Unfortunately, I left it on the grill a little too long. I will be trying this again soon.

    This was an ok marinade, not alot of flavour left after it was barbequed. Perhaps it wpuld have been better in a frying pan. The meat really dried out.
