My husband who is a spice nut, makes this chicken dish. We love it and it is so easy to put together. Marinates overnight. It is good broiled or grilled.

Excellent! The chicken was moist and nicely browned. The marinade was a delicious combination. We grilled the chicken instead of broiling, and I served it with a tomato and cheese salad. We truly enjoyed this dish, and I will definately use the recipe again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
