  1. Is there a limit on how long they can marinate for due to lemon in the marinade? If I prep them this morning and leave in the fridge until tomorrow night, is that ok? Thanks!

  2. Loved this quick and easy dish. Huge hit in our house! Will definitely be a staple during grilling season! 

  3. Can u specify saturated fat? It wasn’t listed

  5. Is there a way to make these in the oven? 

  6. Just put these in the refrigerator to marinate. Any suggestions on side items? I was thinking of an arugula salad. What dressing works best w/ arugula?

  7. Used the marinade on chicken breasts, without cutting them into cubes, and it was a big hit. I think this would be great on a Caesar salad. We'll definitely have this one again!
