A contest winner from Taste of Home. States, "When I told our 12-year-old daughter, Amanda, That we were grilling chicken, she asked to make a marinade. Now we use her combination of honey, lemon, garlic and seasonings every time we grill chicken. —Tamara McFarlin Mondovi, Wisconsin."

Our chicken cooked up beautifully, though the marinade appeared charred from the grill. Had a lovely flavour and the chicken inside was beautifully tender and moist. Prepared the marinade in the morning and allow to marinade all day in the fridge. Photo also to be posted. Made for ZWT8
