This wasn't bad -- it just wasn't great. Definitely a good marinade if you only have these ingredients, but there are much better out there. Will not be making this again.

This was a good recipe that just needed to be grilled for a little less time. We did 8 minutes on each side but will try for 6 next time. I marinated it overnight as I had a hectic day the night we planned on grilling it and the flavor turned out excellent. Will do again but will grill for a shorter time.

This is delicious! I was worried when I put it together that it was going to be too simple and not as flavorful as I'd like. But my husband, son and I could not get enough! It had such a yummy flavor, and we vowed to make it again and again.
