"It was raining pretty heavily so I just threw the chicken in the oven for 25 minutes and it was perfect. The taste of the marinade was flavorful. I will be making this again!"
"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."
"BEST CHICKEN EVER!!!! I have been making this for the past few months!!!!!"
"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!"
"Awesome recipe.. I don't usually leave reviews unless something is really that good."
"So easy! I made this for a neighborhood gathering and everyone loved it, including the young kids! The chicken was flavorful, really tender, and juicy, and the instructions for grilling were perfect!"
"This is an excellent recipe - my favorite marinade."
"Awesome recipe...after we gilled it, I sliced it into strips and used it in wraps. Spread the whole wheat wrap with lite cream cheese, add fresh tomato strips and lettuce and roll up...YUM!!! The chicken had so much flavor, I forgot to sprinkle it with the pepper."
"I used our George Foreman grill for about a total of four minutes, grilling two breasts at a time. Very tasty recipe."
