We stayed home today and did nothing fun to write about so I thought I would step back in time and enlightening you about some good eats. I found the above recipe in a Weight Watchers magazine a while back and thought it was wonderful. So I am sharing it with you. It is so easy to prepare and wonderful to eat.
We served it to friends in Florida and my cousins that visited in Myrtle Beach and they all raved about it. We have prepared it as a kabob and also as chicken stripes and both work good. I have not done it as a whole breast, however. We also prepared it without lemon. It was great, but I liked that citrus flavor. You also must remember that when marinating the meat that the lemon juice is "cooking" it, so no longer than 4 hours. Please try this you will not be disappointed.
We did have another thunder storm today. Not bad here, but somebody was having a big storm near us because we could hear it and feel it at times.
