  • “mmm mmm very delicious! we loved them. Just the right amount of herbs and spice.Made it for Sunday dinner with a baked potato and broccoli. I was only able to marinate them for about 8 hours, but they were sooo good, next time I will do them up the night before.Thanks for posting!!”

  • “We enjoyed this very much.I cut up the chicken into chunks rather than slices (I was in a hurry and didn’t read the directions fully).Rather than serving on skewers, after grilling we un-skewered the chicken and put it all on a serving plate.The flavors blended nicely, and this made a delicious summer dinner.Thanks!”
