    Excellent recipe! The citrus flavor was a delight to the palate, and we've added this new chicken recipe to our repertoire. Thank you for a delicious and easy recipe. (Note for others: Grilled in oven on 2nd tier. Smaller ch breast took 15 minutes-flipped every 6 min. Larger one took 23 minutes.) - 7/17/07
