Wow…  that pretty much sums up this recipe in one word!  Just WOW!

I’ve been making this chicken for years, the marinade makes this chicken SO tender and juicy!  This easy recipe makes a great main dish but it’s also the perfect chicken to top a delicious salad or even to use in a grilled chicken sandwich!

The sauce is quick and very simple but tastes absolutely amazing!  I could (I’m not saying I did or didn’t) eat it with a spoon.  This recipe will become a staple in your household!
