    This was a quick and easy recipe to make. Instead of red capsicum I used yellow because I didn't have any red. I also used tenderloins and I grilled it in the oven. After it was cooked I put the marinade back over the chicken and served it up with Spinach Fettucine. My husband thought it was delicious!  -  29 Nov 2015


    SO tangy and zesty. My kids loved it!Marinated for an hour. Then I baked it in the oven, with juice, and it made it very moist. Also, I topped with crumbled feta cheese during the last 10 minutes. Steamed broccoli to eat with it. DELICIOUS!  -  01 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this recipe for myself last night and it was so delicious that I am making it again tonight for my husband. My grill was out of gas, so I sauteed the chicken in a pan in the marinade. It turned out crispy and yummy! Very easy to make and had all the ingredients! Will definately make this again!  -  15 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
