    Julie in TX's Note:

    This is a yummy flavor filled chicken dish. It's perfect for those hot summer says when you don't want to heat up the kitchen. It can also be prepared in the broiler. I did not include marinating time in the total prep time. I like to serve it with a rice dish and a spinach salad. A cool key-lime pie would make it a perfect meal!

      This was really good! The flavors were great together. I served it with sweet chili sauce for dipping. Will definately be making again.

      I thought this was really good. I didn't have enough lemons to make the entire cup. I ended up with only about a 1/4 cup. I cut back on the honey a bit but kept everything else at the same amounts. I also added sea salt and fresh pepper right before grilling. I really enjoyed the sweet taste the marinade gave to the jasmine rice I served with this. Thanks so much.
