    threeovens's Note:

    The chicken is marinated, then grilled. And WHOO HOO! The marinade is not tossed, but used to make the rice salad. From "Family Circle" magazine. In this recipe, McCormick's Smokehouse pepper is used. This is black pepper that has been infused with applewood smoke. You can use ordinary black pepper or try bacon salt for the salt, or adding a little liquid smoke to the marinade. Times do not include marinating time.

      The chicken was really good and the rice salad complimented it nicely. I made for ZWT8 for The Fearless.
