“This is a fast, easy, and healthy recipe that makes a very moist and flavourful chicken. If you double the marinade you can pour it over some rice and have a complete (and delicious) dinner. Also, if you have the time, let the chicken marinate for longer- it will be even juicier. The marinade would also work well with a mild fish. Recipe is from Cooking Light Magazine (October 2006).”
