MY REVIEW

Very good and easy recipe! My husband and kids loved it and insisted I put it in my recipe box!

Very good! I always overcook chicken until it's totally dried out because I am paranoid about it being cooked all the way through but even when my husband made a comment that I over cooked it again ~ the chicken was still juicy from the marinade! This recipe is a keeper.

Terrific recipe! I added some grated lime zest and fresh ginger to the marinade, and sprinkled the chicken with an Asian seasoning (from the spice aisle). Cooked these in a heavy pan on the stove, just a bit of oil, and they turned out great.

This recipe was very easy to make which is great on work day! The only thing I changed about this recipe was to make it gluten free by using a gluten free soy sauce and gluten free Worcestershire sauce. I usually have these ingredients around so I will be making this again!
