"There is no question in my mind, marinating for at least 24 hours makes a barbeque! I don't cook chicken until it's bone dry! Marinating makes the flavor."

Very tasty and flavorful. We didn't have a grill, so we made it in the oven (450 for 25 mins then 350 for 30-40 mins), and it was delicious that way, as well. Very tender and juicy. Good luck!

Moist and delicious. Full of the perfect balance of flavors. I baked mine in the oven, covered. I had to feed 5 people who all very picky in different ways. They all loved it!

Moist and flavorful. Thanks for sharing.

Just ok. Nothing i would make again. Didnt care for the flavor that much.

The flavor was good, we used an indoor grill which didn't do it justice. Will try it again on an outdoor grill.
