The marinade for this is excellent and the recipe is easy and very tasty. I would cut back on the oil next time because it ended up being a little too greasy. I made exactly as directed except for one boo-boo! I used soya sauce in the sauce instead of chicken broth so it was a little too salty. Still good though! Made for my teammate for ZWT6. Thanks BakinBaby! :)
