Reviews for Thai-Style Chicken
"I've made this twice now and it has been a hit both times. It's nice to have something a little different from the usual flavors I cook with.. I used sour cream instead of plain yogurt and I used boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of breast. So juicy & tasty!"
"My husband and I didn't care for this recipe at all. The taste of lemon was too strong and the consistency of the yogurt is strange. I won't be making this again."
"This is similar to another marinade I make often, so I thought it would taste about the same, but it was better! Really delicious."
"This recipe is a definite keeper. The whole family, including a couple of terribly picky eaters, loved it. It couldn't have been easier to fix, either."
"Excellent flavors! Highly recommend this recipe"
"This was really good and I didn't even marinate it over night!"
