Reviews for Linda's Best Marinated Chicken
"Loved this dish! Used chicken breasts. Cooked these in the oven instead of grill. They turned out beautiful and moist. Whole family gave this a 10! Will definitely be a favourite for us from now on. Thanks for a great recipe."
"Amazing flavor! We used boneless skinless chicken. Turned out so good. Definitely a keeper!"
"Made as described by Linda. She is right, very moist and tender. I refrigerated 24 hrs for max effect. If you grill indiredt, covered with the vents wide open, there is no need to turn the chicken pieces during grilling process. The more you take off the lid the more constant heat you lose. Which is very important when grilling chicken. Just baste once at the 15 min mark and at the table."
"I generally find most marinades for chicken to be a tad bland. Not the case here! This has robust flavor even with these basic ingredients. I used boneless skinless breasts and it grilled up great! Yum!"
"Great marinade! Recipe makes plenty to use another time."
"This marinade was very easy to make and very tasty! We're going to try it as a steak marinade as well. YUM!"
"This was just OK. I found the marinade to be too acidic."
