  1. I made these according to the recipe instructions, except I halved the recipe. My chicken breasts must have been large, because I could have used more veggies. However, I have on diner that will not eat zucchini or mushrooms or tomatoes. So it worked out perfectly. I broiled these as suggested, but I think I would prefer these on the grill. I'll try that next time. Great recipe, and I really enjoyed the left overs today at lunch over rice. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Made this last night for dinner and we really enjoyed the chicken and veggies. I did do things a little differently, as I am lazy, I just used skinless bone-in chicken breast which I left them whole. I cut up some onions and redbell peppers for the veggies and then cooked all on the grill. I served it with rice, green beans and rolls. The only other thing I changed was to use only 3 1/2 tbsps of brown sugar, didn't want it super sweet and didn't have the hot pepper oil so added a few drops of hot sauce. I planned to get a photo but as soon as they were about done, we had a huge thunderstorm. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6.
