My mom posted this recipe for the Cullen Baker Fair. I know its awesome! She made it with whole chickens though. Tangy and amazing.

I agree with Java. This is a must-try recipe. I scaled down the recipe for two servings and the taste was wonderful. With grilling season now here, this recipe will be done often. Thanks for posting.

This is a must try for the summer! I mixed the marinade up in a ziploc bag, threw some frozen chicken breasts in and took them camping. It was the best grilled chicken that we have ever had. I have also used the marinade for roasted veggies - yum!
