Grilled Honey Lemon Garlic Chicken

In the summer, I am all about the hubby making dinner.  Which means that I am continually looking for marinades that will flavor meat just right and be easy on me to mix together.  I loved this marinate because it was flavorful and fast; plus anything with garlic always gets an extra star in my book!
