Don't be turned off by the idea of 'just' salt and pepper. The marinade is intense with flavour, but it's the final seasoning of simple salt and pepper that really makes it delicious. Must use sea salt and freshly ground pepper here, please don't bother with the regular stuff. Such a difference.
Lovely and easy Chicken dish. Don't be tempted to over salt the skin. I love salt but remember the soy sauce in the marinade provides ample saltiness! Thanks for the recipe, will make again. I served with roasted parmesan new potatoes mmm - 05 Nov 2015
I love cardamom so I thought I'd give this recipe a try, especially since everyone else seems to love it. The combination of flavors was just wrong. In fact, I didn't like the smell or taste of the marinade, but I thought maybe combining it with the chicken and cooking it would help. It didn't. It tasted exacly the same. After a couple of forced bites, everyone at the table agreed that it was just inedible, and we threw the rest away. It's a rare meal that's so bad we can't even tolerate it. I followed the recipe exactly, so it must not be my family's type of thing. - 22 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious and flavorful. I didn't make any major alterations with this recipe, other than probably going heavier on the spices that the recipes calls for and marinating this for probably close to 24 hours. This is so tasty moist. I've had this hot and cold and it's perfect either way. Thank you for the recipe. Oh yes. and I used chicken breasts instead of thighs. - 13 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
