A perfect summer dish for the grill. Serve with roasted corn and Savory Grilled Potatoes. Don't forget the Margaritas! From a 1991 Bon Appetit.

Top Review by Titanium Chef

What a wonderful dish. We did 4 chicken breasts and were very disappointed that we didn't have more for leftovers... so I'll have to make it again very soon. The sauce is subtle but has a wonderful flavor. I think next time I'll try adding a touch of cayenne. Thanks for sharing, Lorac, this is definitely a keeper for us!
