I marrinaded chicken thighs overnight in this and then grilled them. It was good, but didn't seem to give a lot of flavor, I even reserved some marinade to put over the cooked chicken, and it still wasn't extremely flavorful. More of a subtle flavor. I would use this again to marinade chicken that I was putting into another dish like a salad or casserole.

Update 10/13/10: Just made again last night and ended up cooking the chicken and the marinade in a pyrek dish. I boilied up some pasta, cut up the chiken and mixed everything together. The sauce was like a dumpling sauce and was terrific over the pasta with the chicken chunks mixed in. **Orginal Review** Easy and delicious! I used dried minced onions from a jar (had no real onions), and garlic powder (didn't have any fresh garlic either) and it still turned out great. I had 2 frozen chicken breasts that I cut into strips. I made the marinade and threw it over the chicken while it thawed or should I say, partially thawed. It only marinaded just under 2 hours because we were starving and couldn't wait. I lined my broiler pan with tin foil and put the somewhat frozen chicken on that. I drizzled more of the marinade on top of the chicken and broiled it for about 9 minutes. It was super tasty and so much better than just plain broiled chicken. Served it with brown rice and steamed vegetables. 6 yo and husband thought it was really good. Thanks for an easy, but very tasty marinade. Next time I might add just a bit more lemon. Couldn't even taste it and we all love lemon.

This was delicious and is going to become a staple in our house! I did what someone else suggested ... marinated in a pyrex dish and then just popped it into the oven when I got home from work and boiled some noodles to accompany it... an easy and delicious dinner! I can't wait for the warmer weather, where I think I'll grill up some pineapple too. If you love the ginger sauce that accompanies Asian steamed dumplings, this marinade tastes just like it. Yum!
