    Chicken was juicy but not enough flavor at all even though I marinaded it overnight.

      This is a must have for all appetites of cuisine. Agreed, paprika, is a great addition, as well as fresh lemon mint , basil, oregano. Fresh lemon juice is the key. I've added in T. Joes romano , parmesean,.. shredded cheese as well(Approx. 6oz.) .T.joes pesto mix 1 tbsp. Moreover for a authentic tuscan catch on the pallete. Martha for president!

    The chicken was good, but not great. Definitely juicy, but not enough flavor.

    So easy and so flavorful. Made for a weeknight dinner; marinaded chicken thighs for 45 minutes as I prepped other items for dinner. Grilled for 23 minutes. Perfection and rave reviews. Delicious the next day for lunch as well! I had fresh thyme on-hand, so I used that...

    Great taste with really simple ingredients that I had in house! - prepped on weekend, marinated overnight, quick and easy Monday supper. Used the dried rosemary, worked great. Would cut peppers larger - many fell through the grill. Definitely will become a regular meal!

    This chicken is very good. It had a lot of flavor and it was moist.

    I agree with the last comment. Don't start the grill if you plan on marinating the chicken overnight,

    This is one of the best chicken recipes I've tasted. I've made it a few times and modified it a bit. I use boneless skinless chicken thighs which turn out moist and juicy and flavourful with this marinade. Also, I steep a bit of lemon zest with the rosemary to bring out the lemony flavour and mix bit of reserved marinade with the lemon juice for basting. Served with grilled veggie brochettes this makes a wonderful summer meal.
