I love to use this marinade while grilling. You might want to cover grill grates with tin foil to keep chicken from sticking.

This was a great marinade! I was looking for a quick chicken marinade and this really fit the bill. As we're preparing to move I didn't have honey so substituted the same amount of brown sugar. I also didn't have chili powder but used a pinch of red pepper flakes. We are gluten free so I used gluten free soy sauce. Everyone loved it! Read More

This was delicious and I'm not a big fan of chicken. This marinade imparted a lot of flavor into the meat. Mr. LTH did have some grilling issues (it ended up a bit "blackened" I assume because of the honey) but he managed to pull it out. I made the marinade in the morning before work and the BLSL breasts marinated about 11 hours before we grilled them. THANKS for the recipe! Read More

I would make it again but cut down on the oil. I used bone-in/skinless chicken thighs. Flavor was great just too much unnecessary oil. Read More

Quick Chicken Marinade Haiku: "Didn't have the chives. Four hours, chicken, oh yum! Have now made it twice." Great marinade w/ easy ingredients one typically has around; made it as directed except omitting the chives due to not having them. Delicious, intense flavor w/ nice color, and perfectly moist chicken within. Read More

Excellent quick and flavourful marinade. Followed recipe minus veg oil. Marinaded boneless skinless chicken thighs for 15min then baked in one pan with chopped potatoes and asparagus (both tossed in olive oil S&P) at 400 for 30min. So yummy! Read More

The first time I made this I made it using all of the ingredients. It was a big hit. I just made this again using chipotle olive oil in place of regular olive oil and left out the ginger once again it was a hit. Read More

Didn't have 4 hours to marinade but no biggie. I marinated for 2 hours and it turned out wonderful. I will use this recipe again and again. Read More

Made it just as is. Got a little black on the grill with the honey, but so tasty! Marinading for 4 hours was perfect. Read More

Great flavor. I didn't have any chives on hand. So, I chopped up a sweet onion to replace it. I used chicken tender loins for my meat. I also cooked it in my air fryer. 400 degrees F for 7 minutes on each side. It was delicious. Read More
