    The flavors of these were wonderful! I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. These would great to make ahead for a camping trip. I know I will!

    This recipe was very easy to make and we loved the flavors. We wanted to make it again right after we enjoyed it for the first time.

    This is a breeze on the grill in hot weather, add some grilled corn and a salad for a great diner

    My husband and I had this along with twice baked potatoes and green salad. It was an excellent meal that we will have again.
