We've had some beautiful weather the past few weekends. We've fired up the grill for lunch several times. We made this chicken last weekend, and it was SO delicious. The marinade is super simple and has tons of great flavor. You can use any type of chicken you have on hand. We used chicken breasts, but this would also be delicious on chicken thighs or even drumsticks. A tip on grilling chicken breasts - pound the chicken to an even thickness before marinating. It helps to cook the chicken evenly and not have the skinny end dry out while waiting on the thicker end to cook.
