    The chicken was moist, tender and absolutely delicious. I saved the marinade, brought it to a boil, simmered and then added cornstarch which made a really nice sauce. Thank you Amy!!  -  28 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I absentmindedly marinated my chicken for two days and thought it might not be so great. IT WAS! Tender and juicy. I think this would be great for taking on a camping trip.  -  21 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Awesome! Used a grill pan because of rain and it was still great. Nice on a salad the next day if you have leftovers.  -  18 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
