This was so great and easy. I would have never thought to warm the oil before brushing it on the chicken and I tell you this really did the trick. I got a new grill this weekend and this was what I did to "chisten" it....And man was it good. Thanks for posting.

This could not be an easier recipe! I used skinless bone-in breasts and adjusted the cooking time accordingly. I decided to marinate the chicken for an hour before cooking which seems to work well too. As a side dish, I made your Potato Smashers and they go very well together. We loved it. Made for Spring Pac 2009. Thx a bunch!
