    " It was excellent "

    I made this dish a few nights ago, and it was great! I had to double the marinade amount, because I had very large chicken breasts. I cooked them on the grill, and the smell was wonderful. I did make a few adjustments to the sauce. I added capers, sundried tomatoes, chicken stock and cornstarch to make a pan sauce. The leftover chicken made a wonderful Chicken Caesar Salad the next night. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!
