Can I substitute chicken breasts with another cut of chicken?

Absolutely! Thighs or drumsticks work well with this recipe, providing a different texture and flavor.

Is it necessary to marinate the chicken overnight?

While it enhances the flavor, marinating for at least an hour is sufficient. Overnight marination simply intensifies the taste.

Can I make this recipe without a grill?

Of course! A skillet or oven can be used as alternatives for grilling, ensuring the same delicious outcome.
