Glad to see that Curt is back with another tasty dish! The lime and balsamic in the sauce no doubt makes for some great flavor. This may be slathered on more that just chicken around here. Yum!

Isn't it great to cook with your family? We're both blessed with that! I love the addition of lime to the balsamic marinade and not just lemon! My lips are puckering with delight at this very moment! A keeper for our summer grilling!
