  1. In a 4-cup measuring cup, combine the first nine ingredients. Pour 2 cups into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2-4 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  2. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade from chicken. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until juices run clear, basting frequently with the reserved marinade.

  • When cutting or seeding hot peppers, use rubber or plastic gloves to protect your hands. Avoid touching your face.
  • Test Kitchen Tip Cut chicken breast halves in half again if serving a buffet with more than one entree choice. Guests are more likely to try different items.
