Wow!! This recipe was incredible. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs, and grilled them outdoors on our barbecue. I marinated the thighs for 2 1/2 hours at room temperature, and they were brilliant. My husband, and two kids *ages one and three* loved them too. This will easily become a regular in our house!! Thanks for the great and easy recipe. - 18 Jul 2008


YUM!! I am a uni student living with three girls. We are always looking for great recipes to impress each other and our frequent guests. This recipe is terrific!! It has a mouthwatering aroma and is very flavourful. We don't have an outdoor barbecue so I used our George Foreman instead and it worked just fine. My date was incredibly impressed, he told everyone that I am a great cook. - 18 Jul 2008


this was pretty good. next time i make it, i will add either fish sauce or soy sauce to add more flavour. even some lemon may add a little more. - 18 Jul 2008
