Reviews for Bombay Chicken
"Simple and tasty!"
"I have made this recipe a few times. It never disappoints. Moist and flavorful. It stands out from ordinary barbeque sauce."
"This is one of my favorite marinade recipes. I followed the recipe exactly. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts."
"This recipe has a great balance of heat and warmth from the spices that is not too overpowering. I used boneless chicken breasts, which turned out really moist and flavorful."
"I was really excited about this recipe. I did not grill it, so maybe that has something to do with the the lack of flavor. Instead, I cooked it in a large electric skillet. I also marinated for about 12 hrs. I might try it as the recipe states next time, but if it does not improve, I will not try it again."
"This recipe was GREAT! We had a cookout at work today. My boss picked this one out of my magazine and I did all the prep yesterday. Needed two grills to cook all, but it was worth it! The only thing I changed was the skinless part of the chicken we all love the skin on chicken here! I guarantee I will be making this one again. Had to double the recipe to feed all, but it was wonderful!"
"I made this for myself at least a year ago.. and just made it for my folks and sister with her family. It went over real well.. but they requested that I make it with chicken breast instead. Both times that I made it, I baked it.. since I used chicken thigh, I cooked it at 350 degrees for 45 min. Yummy!"
"I made this while camping. I pulled the chicken out of the bag and put it into a grill basket, then onto the fire it went. It was very easy, and quite a tasty treat to have around a campfire!"
