I'm hoping someone bookmarks the site below and tries grilling the chicken pieces and maybe report back to us here sometime. Cole slaw, corn on the cob, Mexican rice, and Mexcian style beans are good side dishes. Flour tortillas with some mild chunky salsa on it too, of course.

I just read the recipe. I would boil the reserved marinade before using it for basting the chicken.
I'm still not feeling well, either. Stomach starts hurting soon after I eat, no matter what it is, so I'm not eating much.
