    Lasata, I think if you grill the boneless chicken breasts you may be ok. Here are some things that come to mind:
    1. I would marinate the chicken for an hour or so using the first 6 ingredients (the spices) and either some yogurt or buttermilk. This will help flavor the chicken and keep it tender.
    2. Boneless chicken breasts grill REALLY fast! So don't overcook them.
    3. The honey glaze at the end sounds delicious. Keep in mind that on a grill, it is going to burn very fast, so make sure you chicken is mostly done, then brush on the glaze and give it 30 seconds or so on each side (just so it lightly browns).

    Sounds good! Let me know if you need any more help/info, etc. :)

    My pleasure, RFB. Can you eat them with your allergies?

    Tonight I think we're having spaghetti and sausage. Great sale on the store-made HT Italian sausage yesterday, so I stocked up. I may even go back and get more. Too early for me to think much more about it. I'm still working on my first cup of coffee.
