My husband loved this, I only liked it, but overall, the chicken was nice and moist. I marinated the chicken overnight and served with Beet Salad (Indian). Thanks!

Five stars for a great recipe! All I changed was to drizzle some oil instead of margarine in step 5. I only had half a day to marinate and the chicken tasted so good, I can only imagine how delicious it would be if you left it overnight! I served this with Charishma's Jasmine Brown Rice and Veggies and garnished with lettuce leaves, some sliced cucumber and a baby red chili. Looked lovely! Thanks again Bec!
