GROSS! I like just about all kinds of food, but this chicken tasted like it was seasoned with all of the stuff that collects at the bottom of my grill ground up with a Christmas tree!!! It was definately a gorgeous presentation and the cucumber relish was delish...but chicken nasty. My husband was also extremely dissatisfied.
