    Quick and easy, but tastes like you put a lot of work into it. Instead of grilling, we just cooked the chicken and marinade then let it simmer away so the sauce thickened. Chicken was wonderfully moist and tasted good with butter herbed angel hair

    Can't get much simplier than this! Moist chicken and great flavor. Nothing super excited but it always comes out right each time.

    This marinade is super delicious! I just cooked the chicken in the oven and the flavor in the chicken was amazing. It was a nice change to my normal chicken seasonings.

    It was raining pretty heavily so I just threw the chicken in the oven for 25 minutes and it was perfect. The taste of the marinade was flavorful. I will be making this again!

    Very good! I always overcook chicken until it's totally dried out because I am paranoid about it being cooked all the way through but even when my husband made a comment that I over cooked it again ~ the chicken was still juicy from the marinade! This recipe is a keeper.
