"I used teriyaki sauce instead of soy sauce, and straight orange juice, also that spice was WAY too expensive so I used cinnamon, garlic, poppy seeds, salt, and pepper. I also cut up some onions and carrots and threw that in it. I marinated it for a night and then grilled it. It turned out wonderful."

"I swapped out gluten free soy sauce for regular soy sauce to make this marinate gluten free. The whole family liked the chicken."

"the five spice powder is expensive, but if you already have it, it gives a great flavor to the chicken. Made this on our George Foreman grill. Very good!"
