This tasted great and was great on a summer day. my husband said it ws the best dinner yet! Instead of splitting the chicken breasts, I just used extra thin breasts that you get in the store. Worked out great! I just had to tell my husband not to overdo them on the grill!
My husband LOVED this recipe!! It was very easy to prepare. I used my George Foreman to cook them and they turned out perfect!! Thanks for this recipe, its a keeper!!
