    Really tasty and moist I used a griddle the breasts were quite thick and needed considerably more than 5-8 minutes total to be cooked through

    SO good! It’s worth letting the chicken sit in the marinade a little longer, for sure!

    This chicken is amazing!! I’ve made it 3 times already and each time it has been delicious!! Even my picky 6 year old and 4 year old who put themselves on a strict “kid food” diet ate this and asked for seconds!! One important detail that I’ve learned...definitely allow it to marinate for 4 hours (as recommend in the recipe) because it really brings out the flavor!! The first time I made it, I only marinated for 1 hour and wow what a difference from the longer marinate time!!

    This is the bomb. I doubled the seasonings though

    This is, by FAR, my favorite grilled chicken. I like to slice it up and have it on salads with a cilantro dressing and avocado.

    Fantastic. Made it without the red pepper. Still delicious.

    Excellent. Only used 1/2 teaspoon of red peppers....spicy enough. Will make again.

    I really liked it! I marinated my chicken for about 3 hours and used basil instead of oregano. It was bomb!!

    It was great though you might wanna check the calorie count, i mean how come this dish has 0g of proteins?

    It was delicious... I used diced onions instead of onion powder

    Taste was pretty good, ii was in a hurry and didn't give it much more than 1/2 hour to marinate though. Next time will give it plenty of marination time.

    This chicken is great! I served it over Caesar salad.
    Amazing! Super juicy, flavorful and versatile. You can vary the spices and get surprisingly good taste every time.

    This was some of the juiciest chicken my family has ever had. My two year old gobbled it up and my husband said it was some if the best chicken he's ever eaten. We cooked it over a charcoal grill and that added to the great flavor.

    I marinated the chicken the night before we grilled it for our Supper Club. Easy, tasty & healthy! Will definitely make this again!
