I added a bit to Bergy's wonderful Ginger-Lime Marinade and came up with this; a staple in our house now. The ingredient variations are used depending on how much chicken I have; usually I use this marinade with boneless chicken breasts. I would recommend grilling with mesquite (real mesquite not briquettes). El Diablo or Best of the West are great if they are available where you are.
