So simple, so tasty, this is a no fail recipe! Excellent for barbecues served with salad or with my Braised (Pilaf) Rice.We love them stuffed into pita bread or in wraps with salad for lunch. Also great cold for picnics! Timing does not include marinating time.

I omitted the part with the salt and lemon juice on the chicken (I used boneless skinless chicken thighs). In the marinade, I omitted the coriander. Since I wanted it low-fat, I didn't brush with melted butter. The taste was very yummy. And the chicken very tender. Thanks Noo :) Made for PRMR tag game
