Delicious! My only change was to add the zest of half a lime to the marinade. Due to the weather I had to sauté mine on the stove and the chicken turned out juicy and wonderful. I am adding this to my list of go to recipes.
This is a pretty good chicky recipe. We liked it, but it was not over the top for us. I will probably make it again but make it in a frying pan and let the juices glaze up adding some brown sugar, while cooking it in the pan.
This is really good; perfect for summer. Next time I will add a touch more sugar, but otherwise it was perfect. Just the recipe I was looking for. I topped it with a little bit of chopped cilantro. That really makes the flavors pop. Thanks for posting.
