This chicken is FANTASTIC!! I knew I was going to love this the minute I saw the recipe and it did not disappoint - what wonderful flavor! Just a little spicy but not overpowering, and you can really taste the celery flavor. I saved some marinade as you suggested, reducing it and adding just a little honey to make a sauce, then glaze the chicken with it at the end of the grilling time. I used this on boneless skinless breasts and we loved it - thanks for sharing a keeper!
It is hard to come up with something original to do to grilled chicken and this recipe did it. The flavor that the marinade gave the chicken was unique and flavorful without being overwhelming. ( I don't drink, so I was a little worried it would seem "boozy", but it didn't!) I actually marinated the chicken for 24 hours and it wasn't too much. I broiled in the oven for 4 minutes on each side and it was perfect.
Loved the flavor! I couldn't grill outside.....30 degrees in Florida with sideways blowing icy rain!!! Very disappointed I couldn't cook these my preferred method after marinating all day! Came home from work and resolved myself to cooking indoors. Still delicious!!! Plus quick and easy once they went in the oven. Made for Best of Tag 2010!
I love it when I pick something for dinner that we enjoy as much as we did this! I marinated chicken breasts for 6 hours and instead of cooking them on the BBQ, just cooked them in the oven. I used 1 teaspoon of celery seed and 1 teaspoon of salt, otherwise followed your recipe. We loved the sweet/sour, tomatoey, zingy sauce and will make all this again really soon I think.
