    This did nothing for me. The marinade smelled great, but I did not think it did much for the chicken. My husband liked it, but I will not make this again. It was too mild and bland for me.  -  25 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I used this marinade with fish. My husband thought it was really good. I didn't like it as well, but I am not feeling very good, so that might be the reason.  -  26 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
