Very good. I used about half the vegetable oil and used jarred minced garlic instead of garlic powder and used about twice the amount. I pounded the chicken down to 1/2 inch thick and let it marinate all day. The molasses gave it a nice color and just enough sweetness. Read More

I marinated the chicken for 24 hour and the chicken turned out moist and tender but it lacked flavor. I was expecting more. Probably won t make again. Read More

This was easy and amazing!!! I used 3 cloves of garlic instead of the garlic powder and apple cider vinegar instead of distilled white. My lemon seasoning was "Weber" grill seasoning. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly as described. Believe me when I tell you that the 8-hour marinading made the chicken breast so moist tasty and tender. My husband and I couldn't pick out any overpowering taste because it all blended together My nie-year old (who is quite picky about spicy foods) just gobbled it up!!! Read More

I halved the recipe and marinated 5 large chicken breast to grill. I didn't have lemon pepper seasoning so I used the juice of half a lemon and ground pepper. Moist chicken! Read More

loved loved this marinade one of the very best I have ever tried. I did however alter it just a little. I used only fresh garlic (3 cloves) I am a true garlic freak. I used a tablespoon of onion powder and I used Apple Cider vinegar definately made a difference. I also added 1 cup plus (taste test along the way) of brown sugar. My husband flipped over this recipe. Good job Misti... Read More

Loved loved loved this marinade. My son who hates molasses ate everything. Kept going back to the fridge and ate all the leftovers. I think this would work well with pork chops. Have to try that next time. Only change I made was to cut back on the oil by half. Read More

I cut up some chicken into strips and marinated them for about 4 hours. Then I stir fried them and used them in a chicken salad with oven french fries cheese and salad fixings. It was very tasty and I will definitely use this recipe again!! Read More
