This was really tasty. I ended up marinating the chicken overnight and boy what a good flavor the chicken has. Also I lightened up the recipe by using 1/4 cup of oil versus 1 cup and it came out great. If there are any leftovers, I will shread the chicken and use in a fresh salad with a honey dressing. This was very simple to prepare also. YUM!!
