    This was yummy, the whole family liked it. I did rub the chicken with the seasoning mix before grilling. My sauce was runny. How can I fix that? - 1/16/13

    Very good! I think next time I will season the chicken with salt and pepper while it is cooking. Use less seasoning on the tomatoes. - 1/21/12
