Easy to prepare and delicious! The chicken was juicy and tender. The marinade gives a wonderful flavor, but isn’t too much. I made this with boneless skinless chicken breasts and pork chops. Both meats were excellent.

My Husband grilled this recipe last night and it was a hit! He is so picky, but he said I would do this again. Yes!

I prepared this recipe tonight and it is delicious. I followed the recipe and used sriracha sauce for the hot pepper sauce. I only used one chicken breast for hubby and I to split so halved the ingredients. This chicken was so tender and moist and had the most delicious flavor. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

Really good! This is probably the only marinade I have ever made with melted butter. It was surprisingly a good addition. It seemed to help crisp up the skin, providing a nice texture.

So good! Everyone loved it. Was just as good on steak. This will be my go-to marinade.

Amazing recipe! I made this for a large family gathering, and everybody loved it. To save time, I coarsely chopped the onion and threw all of the marinade ingredients into the blender to make everything smooth.

I don't usually take the time to write a review after a recipe, but I had to come back to this one! I did the marinade all day and this was so moist and delicious. I did not take the time to cut up garlic and used powder instead...just as good. I think you could also use onion powder instead if you don't want the chunks in the marinade. Either way, this is delicious and we will most definitely make this again. I do suggest pounding the chicken first to make for extra moist meat.I wonder if there is an equal substitute for the butter to make it less fattening?

My two year old loved this! She normally doesn't eat much meat at all but wanted thirds of this great recipe.
