      Hi Conrad, Tori’s assistant Ashley here. As long as the chicken is cooked to the correct temperature, cooking it on a flat top grill should be just fine!

    Hi Tori,

    This chicken looks delicious and fairly easy to make. I usually make my whole chicken in the oven and never think to cook as much chicken on the grill. Is there a side dish that you would recommend to go with this? I was thinking perhaps a mango, tomato and cilantro salad, but don’t want to overwhelm the dish. What do you think?

    Thank you for this great idea!

      Jackie, honestly I don’t cook with pork so I’m not sure, I assume it probably would the marinade is pretty universal.

    Tori! Nice recipe. I made it without the oregano due to allergies, but I’m wondering if there is a suitable substitute for the oregano. It was great w/o it, but I was curious. Thanks!

    Tori: I’m planning to try this recipe but I’m wondering if all that acidic juice in the marinade will start to ‘cook’ the meat if marinated for hours.

    Thanks! Love your site!

      Hi Pat– I just made another batch of these marinated overnight. The acid may have a slight “cooking” effect but it doesn’t dry out the meat. As long as you don’t overcook the breasts, they should turn out juicy and flavorful. Enjoy!

    Can this be done on an indoor grill, like a george foreman. Would love to try it sometime before July. (That’s when I have access to an outdoor grill)

    • Tori Avey says

      Hi Mary- yes, absolutely. It won’t have the same smoky flavor that a flame grill provides, but it will still be very tasty. Let me know how you like it!

    You have inspired me to get out my grill – I too have so many memories of camping trips with my family as a child! The smell of wood smoke will always be a favorite! I enjoy your blog, which I discovered just before pesach.
