This dish is not only quick and easy to prepare but also incredibly versatile, making it a great addition to any summer meal. Plus, it's kid-friendly and sure to be a favourite among the little ones, making family dinners a breeze. For added fun, let the kids help with marinating the chicken – it's a great way to get them involved in cooking and excited about healthy eating.
