MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2014

I agree with the other reviewers on this. I made as specified. turned out ok, not bad. We have better marinades than this one. At times, I thought the poultry season was a tad too strong.

This wasn't bad, it just didn't suit my family's tastes. We've had many other marinated chicken recipes we've liked far more.

great just as is! I never change anything the first time around. otherwise how can you honestly rate a recipe?? Some of the comments look like whole new recipes. Why don't folks just submit the changes they made as a new recipe ??

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 1, 2013

I halved the recipe and made one half of the recipe as written and I modified the other half. I found the poultry seasoning over powered the delicate flavor of the chicken citrus flavors and muddled the flavor of the entire dish. In the other half I used a teaspoon of spicy brown,grainy mustard and eliminated the poultry seasoning, I also added 1/4 cup of white wine. The marinade turned out very well, the flavors went well together, the citrus flavor was more defined. Making the sandwiches more flavorful. My family and I did a taste test and the modified recipe was everyone's favorite. Thanks for the inspiration!
