Oh my gosh, this was sooo good. I did use boneless skinless chicken breast and cooked on my stove top grill. Looking forward to making again and again. Thanks for sharing Vino Girl.

Great recipe. Nice combination of flavors. I used "bone-in" skinless thighs and cooked them about 10 minutes on each side before basting with the honey/vinegar sauce. I will definitely make this again!

Absolutly amazing! I loved every bite of this flavorful chicken. I used chicken breasts that I cut into halves. I put the spices in a bag and threw the chicken in it and shook it up, then let it marinade in the fridge for a hour to let the flavors really get in the chicken. I think I'd cut down on the salt next time cause it was a tad salty. This would be great in a sandwich with avocado!! UPDATE: I made this again served sliced on top of a spinich & arugula salad with orange segments, avocado chunks and with a orange honey vinaigarette...it was awesome! The chicken goes with oranges & avocado very well!!
