    My dad used to make these when we were younger. Can't remember what the chicken was coated in tho we used to have chicken, bacon, pineapple, red onion, baby mushrooms and tomatoes on ours. Delish. Also.... you can cook them in the oven (gas mark 5/6 in centre) for about 20-25 minutes turning halfway. Just make sure you put them on tin foil or the chicken will stick to the tray.  -  16 Mar 2015


    Used different ingredients. Wow! These are beautiful and great tasting! I added chunks of pepper, pineapple and served with white rice. The only thing I would do differently next time is marinate much longer than 30 minutes. Yum!!  -  24 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. Excellent recipe! I too added vegies to this dish (green pepper, broccoli and onion) which I marinated overnight and added some seasonings and a bit of hot sauce to the mixture. Just make sure you don't marinate the meat and vegetables together. As others, I served this over rice and my gang absolutely loved it! Terrific Hillary!  -  24 Jul 2008
