      I loved this chicken, the marinade made such a difference in the flavor of the meat in a very short time. tangy and good! I wish I had fresh parsley for the sauce, I only had dried, but it was really good. I paired this with the sweet potato salad with bacon and it was so amazing all together. Great complimentary flavors. My “mayo” did not thicken up however, I don’t know what I did wrong, but all in all the sauce was wonderful and light, and made me feel like I was having a cream sauce, which is a weakness of mine!
