I really meant to marinate the chicken breasts before I left for work this morning, but I forgot. Sooooo...when I got home I basted the chicken with the marinade while I broiled, then poured the drippings over the chicken and served. Yumdiddlyicious! Thanks for a great recipe!

Great chicken! I used all fresh herbs, marinated it overnight and threw it on the grill. It came out really moist and flavorful. I am going to try this with fish next! Thanks for the post!

Delicious and tender chicken! I also did not marinate overnight and only had 2 lemons available..still came out delicious. Very easy to prepare. This one will definitely be a keeper.
