    Altered ingredient amounts. 5 stars for being and easy and tasty recipe! I used boneless, skinless breasts. I added bits of orange peel to the marinade for added flavour. If you use dried rosemary make sure you strain the marinade before basting or you will have chewy leaves. I boiled the remaining marinade, added a splash of gran mariner and thickened with a teaspoon of cornflour in a bit of water. Pour over chicken breasts when you serve. Yum!  -  29 Sep 2008

    Something else. This was a repeater. Most of the ingredients are staples - ok, ok, so I had to substitute spring onions for the chives but it turned out just fine. When making it, highlight the marinate 4 hours so you can have it on the night you planned to have it. I am not a broiler so it went on the grill and worked just fine.  -  29 Sep 2008
