This is so easy to make and has a great flavor. One of my husband's favorites. Adapted from BHG The Grilling Book to suit our taste. Great served with wild rice and a salad. Enjoy

We followed the recipe using the freshest ingredients, and we were so surprised how bland our chicken turned out. I can see why so many other reviews have made suggestions, it's missing something! Thank you for posting this recipe.
