    This was a great summer meal. Sprayed chicken with oil and cooked on the bbq. Prepped gremolata & sugar snap/feta salad exactly to direction and got terrific results. Served with side tomato/cuke/kalamata salad. Should have included a pita half, but didn't think of that til too late. Excellent.

    This was pretty good. However, I made the gremolata 1 hour ahead of time and the mint turned a brown color which was strange. I think the gremolata really needs some added lemon juice to it too because it didn't have the best flavor as is, though it still was ok. I had this with orzo pasta. I may make this again with addition of lemon juice.

    Everyone loved this, and it was simple to make, with the help of the Cuisinart. One guest asked me if I had gotten the recipe out of Gourmet Magazine. I said,

    I have to agree with the other reviewers - this was very very good, and very easy. I made it with the suggested sugar snap and feta salad found in Cooking Light magazine along with some jasmine rice, and my husband and I really enjoyed it.

    Something was missing in the gremolata It was bland. I ended up mixing it into lamb burgers - that was so much better than as a topping for griled chicken

    Good, easy recipe. I used a mix of basil and parsley (my mint plant couldn't handle to loose a whole cup of leaves). I think the gremolata could withstand 2 tsp of lemon juice to cut the garlic, but it was very good. The snap pea, red onion, and feta salad was AMAZING! That dressing is definitely a keeper!

    my husband thought it was company worthy. We grilled the chicken outside and used free range chicken for better flavor and tenderness. I planned this at the last minute and the closest store didn't have pine nuts, so I used walnuts. It was fabulous. I served with roasted potatoes and a beet and arugula salad.

    I had everything on hand to make this. I made it just as directed. Served it with roasted green beans and cherry tomatoes. The whole family loved it and I will definitely make it again - thanks to an explosion of mint in my garden!

    A simple spring dinner, tasty and refreshing.

    This was just ok. A squeeze of lemon juice will help keep the gremolata from turning brown. Next time I will add some spices to the chicken before grilling: garlic salt and a little cumin would be good. The sugar snap and feta salad recommended to go with this recipe was outstanding.

    My family really enjoyed this dish. I thought it was very easy to make. I thought the flavor was perfect and I can't wait to try the gremolata on fish.
