The dinner guests raved about this chicken, but I couldn't help but think they were just stroking my ego. It just wasn't that good. I am far from being a salt-aholic, but the marinade would have benefitted from the addition of some salt, imo... Or perhaps some salt directly on the chicken just before grilling. If I try this recipe again, that's one change I'll definitely make.

This was pretty tasty. not totally to my family's tastes, but good, nonetheless. I served it with Recipe #29303 and Recipe #228793 for a great dinner that didn't heat up the kitchen with the oven. Chicken was also very good cold the next day! Thanks for posting!

I have the same recipe except it has the addition of 6 fresh basil leaves and instead of lemon juice it has 1 tsp. red wine vinegar.
