Garlic, basil, rosemary and parmesan cheese...what's not to love? Unfortunately this recipe was a bit of a disappointment. Without the benefit of a marinating acid and time the flavours seemed to fade while grilling and the chicken became a little tough. I would try this again, but make some substantial changes. Thank you for posting.
5/14/09 I have to agree with a couple of the Reviews.. The ingredients sounded fabulous.. as one person said.. "what's not to love" but when grilled the ingredients lost a lot of their flavour and the chicken DID toughen a little bit. I think maybe the Parmesan cheese was the issue. Next time I will take it out as the other ingredients stand well, alone.
