    I thought this recipe was horrible. The oregano was too over powering. - 10/31/10

    Not much "sauce", rather dry - I let it marinate over night. Added capers to up the flavor. OK - 10/11/10

    This was great on the grill. We paired it with some brocolli and rice. The lemon wasn't over-powering like some recipes I've tried. - 9/5/10

    I made this last night... I added a bit more lemon juice, fresh basil, and a bit more garlic... I was only able to marinate the chicken for about 2 hours... My husband and I both loved it... I will be adding this to my dinner rotation! - 9/1/10
