    I made these grilled chicken breast along with grilled romaine , chopped them up into bite size pieces and made a grilled Caesar wrap. I added some parm. Cheese and some lightly crushed croutons for some crunch. It’ was a huge hit.

    This has been a family favorite for years. You can also freeze the raw chicken in the marinade. I did it when I took my son to Pigeon Forge, TN (4 hr drive). I had taken it out of the freezer

    This chicken was our dinner tonight and we loved it. I marinated it all day and the flavor was delicious. None of the ingredients stood out but melded together nicely. I followed the directions except cut it back for one chicken breast that hubby and I split. We will be having this chicken again.Volunteer Field Editor

    Very tasty, but I recommend piercing the chicken a little so the marinade can get down into it.

    We like to rent a cabin when we travel to The Smokey Mountains & use the grill provided there. So I like to prepare my meats in the marinades & freeze ahead of time. This was definitely a favorite! Even my 13 yr. old who is an extremely picky eater asks for this again. Delicious is an understatement!
