"This chicken was our dinner tonight and we loved it. I marinated it all day and the flavor was delicious. None of the ingredients stood out but melded together nicely. I followed the directions except cut it back for one chicken breast that hubby and I split. We will be having this chicken again.

"Very tasty, but I recommend piercing the chicken a little so the marinade can get down into it."

"We like to rent a cabin when we travel to The Smokey Mountains & use the grill provided there. So I like to prepare my meats in the marinades & freeze ahead of time. This was definitely a favorite! Even my 13 yr. old who is an extremely picky eater asks for this again. Delicious is an understatement!"
