Loved this grilled chicken dish. I can always tell when a recipe is a winner as my hubby went back for seconds and made a happy plate!! The avocado tapenade was a great addition -- I just wish I had taken the time to roast some garlic; however, the minced fresh garlic was fine. Thanks for the post.
