Very good marinade for chicken! The chicken itself comes out very moist and full of flavor. Definitely one to try. Taken from Weber's Real Grilling.

Excellent way to grill chicken. I left my chicken breasts whole, since I was in a hurry. I've made this a few times and the chicken is very versatile in other dishes. Thanks Tinebean, for another way to grill chicken! Roxygirl
