"This is a great recipe, we make this quite often, I usually do legs or leg quarters and remove the skin before marinating overnight. This marinade gives chicken a wonderful flavor!"

"good flavor! I baked it in the oven. to make it showy I topped each piece with a thin lemon slice,and then sprinkled green onions and chopped almonds over the top. I added cornstartch to some of the juice and returned it to the oven to glaze and thicken the chicken - wonderful!"
