To us it was okay easy but nothing special. Even so I would recommend giving it a try. We won't be doing this one again but it was an okay dinner. Read More

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. Read More

Awesome! Used a grill pan because of rain and it was still great. Nice on a salad the next day if you have leftovers. Read More

Very tasty and very easy. I poked holes in the chicken with a fork before marinating. I only had time to marinate it for 6 hours and it was still really moist. Read More

Recipe was quick and easy I found butterflying the chicken helped shorten cooking time and left it more moist. Read More

I am so glad I found this. A friend gave me this years ago and I lost it. I make kabobs with it using pinapple chunks green pepper and onion. I marinate all of it in the juice. So good and easy. Read More
