      Great change of pace recipe for grilled chicken. My daughter loves it! <br/><br/>Chef Colt, I pounded my chicken out evenly before marinading and grilled it in my barrel smoker over lowered direct heat. It only took around thirty minutes, if that.

      Great Marinade, Great chicken. We like the lemon marinade so much we double it. Only problem I see with this recipe is the cooking time. I'd like to know what grill will cook 4 chicken halves in 20 minutes. I want one! Figure at least 1 hr 15 mins instead cooking between 375 and 400 degrees.

      Had this recipe off the grill last night and it was ever so tasty. I cut all ingredients in half and wish I'd used more lemon juice, but will surely be trying this again..soon. Thanks for sharing.
