This a favorite during the summer for my family! Just add a pasta salad with lots of fresh vegetables that are in season. The prep time will depend on how long you let it marinade and cooking time will vary depending on which pieces of the chicken you use. Sometimes I use a whole cut up chicken others wings and legs.
