I used this recipe last summer before they started rating recipes.I just hunted it up because with frest cucumbers from the garden now I will make this several times this summer. We really liked the chicken so don't be afraid to try this one folks.It's a winner!

The flavors in the salsa just didn't mesh. The chicken would have probably been better if it had been marinading overnight. I don't think I'd make this again.

I really liked the relish, it was delicious! However, the spices didn't permeate our chicken as much as I'd hoped for. We marinated for a couple of hours, but perhaps overnight would be better.

Very tasty. Cucumber and pepper relish is a nice contrast to the spice of the chicken.

I made this last night and it was a hit!! I sliced up the chicken breast after grilling them and used them in wraps with the salsa. Served Mexican Rice on the side with red beans and corn. Delicious!!!

EXCELLENT! I used thin sliced breasts, so that we could put em' on a bun topped with the relish. SOOOO good, and not to mention low cal. I used the extra relish on brats the next day & it was equally as good. Good recipe, thanks Fiona!!

This is the first recipe I tried from this website and now I am hooked! I grilled the chicken on my Weber and it was so juicy and tender. The cucumber relish added a fresh, crunchy zest to the dish. A definate "keeper"!

I marinated the chicken for 24 hrs. Grilled for about 6 minutes per side. Chicken was delicious and moist. I added a little salt and pepper to the relish and a little italian dressing. Keeper.
