Great flavor! Next time I will marinate chicken in sauce for at least 1 hr before grilling.

This was a good easy recipe and moist which is important to me. I will make this again.

I really liked this recipe. It worked very well with my grill pan, since I don't own a real grill. My man bought the thin cutlets instead by accident, but they worked out very well anyway. The taste was delicious. He said he definitely wants to make it again.

We grill a lot of chicken during the summer months, so I'm always trying out new recipes. This recipe is delicious! I substituted lemon-flavored olive oil for the butter and marinated the chicken for several hours (discard marinade) before my husband grilled it.

Instead of butter I use olive oil. I marinate for at least an hour or as long as overnight. Discard marinade and grill chicken until done. This is super delicious chicken! I serve with rice and salad.
