MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 12, 2013

Very moist. I would probably add more lime next time but it is definitely being added to my do again list!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 5, 2013

i did it on the grill and it stayed very juicy and very flavorable. my grandkids loved it

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 16, 2013

I would make the recipe again but would use fresh ginger and garlic. I substituted chicken broth for the wine, and felt there was not enough presence of the citrus, so would use the zest of the lime and maybe a teaspoonful of dried chili flakes in the marinade. It was a bit bland for my family's taste but we felt that we could play with the recipe and have a good product.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 16, 2013

I made this with no changes to the recipe and it was completely tasteless. No one in the family liked it. It was moist, but boiled chicken is moist. I want something with a little flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2013

Came out moist and tender. I marinated it all day and thought it didn't take on the honey and lime flavors as well as I would have liked. I might reserve some marinade and make a sauce next time.
