What a fabulous marinade this is!!!! I had already made another salsa recipe so I didn't actually use that part of this recipe but the marinade alone is worthy of 5 stars. I didn't slice the chicken, just marinated boneless, skinless breast whole for about the same time suggested and barbecue'd them - this is a new favourite at my house:)
