Just awesome! Marinade is fantastic, as is the salsa! And it's relatively fast!

This recipe is tasty, easy, looks great on the plate, and best of all everyone I have served it to raves about it.

Love love love this dish! All the flavors really come together! It is a bit of work chopping all the herbs etc. but so worth it. We make this several times throughout the summer when I can gather all the fresh herbs from my garden. Served with a crisp salad or grilled zucchini & peppers it is a winner in our household!

Thank -you, Ruth for a wonderful recipe. The salsa is so good! I followed the recipe, ingredient wise completely, using fresh herbs from my garden. The only thing I did wrong was marinated the chicken too long (about 4 hours) I will do as the recipe recommends next time. I served it with grilled pattypan squash( olive oil,garlic, salt,pepper) 5 min. each side and grilled italian bread with that salsa! Yum

Very good! Entire picky family enjoyed this meal. I did use a few jar spices instead of the fresh as suggested since I had a difficult time finding them all fresh.

Great dish, paired with cooked snap peas and cherry tomatos from another CL recipe. my only issue was the 1/2 cup of basil... really? i used 1/4 cup and thought this was way too much. but great recipe and i will definitely make again, with even less basil.

Excellent weeknight meal. I omitted the OJ concentrate in the salsa--- seemed out of place. I also don't like tomatoes in the refrigerator, so I kept the salsa on the counter while I made the marinade and cooked the chicken (30 mins). Unfortunately, I didn't have time to marinate, but is was excellent using marinade as a basting/refreshing sauce. Next time I will sit in in half the marinade prior to cooking and will use the other half as a refreshing sauce in the final minutes before it comes off the grill. Served on a bed of spinach with some grilled bread.
