Delicious and simple recipe. An excellent side dish idea would be to first take some extra marinade before you put the chicken in and just marinate your favorite vegetables in it for a few hours or so and then grill them with chicken or roast them in the oven for an incredible meal thats perfect for any special diets! We like to do some eggplants, zucchinni, tomatoes, peppers, onions and mushrooms - they go wonderfully with the chicken and especially with some extra marinade on the vegetables, like a dressing.
