I like to serve chicken and broccoli with rice, along with a side of pineapple or other fresh fruit. Leftovers (if there are any) are great the next day when used in a salad or wrapped in a flour tortilla with a little mayonnaise. —Bethany Seeley, Warwick, Rhode Island

This is the best marinade. Will definitely make it again. I let it marinate for about an hour.
