    This not a very good marinade. I made it I made slits in the chicken so the marinade would soak. Poured the marinade over the chicken in a zip lock bag. Let it sit in the fridge overnight. Had dinner at 6pm

    The marinade was yummy but subtle. It didn't really seem to flavor the inner chicken portion at all, despite marinading for 8 hours. The pieces of chicken we had weren't large either. Next time we might try poking holes in the chicken or using some sort of injector. I'd still try this again!

    Delicious. I used bone-in, skin-on breasts and thighs. Had to finish cooking in the oven, because of a storm that rolled thru, but the chicken was delicious still. Nice flavors, very tender, juicy.

    This marinade was good and certainly quick. I may make this again.
