Thank you so much for sharing, it being summer, I was looking for these kind of recipes, great choice on your part , again thank you so much 😊
A recipe like this always inspire and I truly appreciate the way you made this delicious chicken recipe. Everything is so nicely described that really helped me.
Thanks for sharing such an amazing recipe. It came out to be veryyy tasty.
Packed full of flavor and goodness. I will be adding this to our recipes. It was steamy out today so I chopped it up and made a salad out of it.
This was amazing!! My husband and I loved it. I let the chicken marinade for 1 hour and served it with grilled zucchini. Perfect summer lunch!!
Can you cook this over the stove & get the same results?
Simple, delicious and healthy! I put this together in the morning and let it marinade all day in the fridge. The longer you marinate the chicken the better! Don’t forget to pierce your chicken breasts with a fork a few times before adding the marinade. This allows the marinade to get all through the chicken so you have deliciousness in EVERY bite
That’s a great idea! I didn’t poke the chicken first. I will try that next time.
This was so easy and great tasting. You have a new fan. I look forward to trying some of your other recipes.
