I grill a lot in the summer. I like to come up with new marinades for grilling. This is a marinade I came up with that Is a little bit sweet and a little spicy. This chicken would be great on sandwiches, marinate wings before grilling over night. serve breasts alone, or top salads with it. Enjoy and happy grilling!
