All my picky eaters like it! I simply told them it was a sweet and sour chicken recipe w/out a ketchup base. I use boneless/ skinless chicken breasts. My only problem was that it stuck to the grill and got a tad burned, but next time I'll make my DH grill. I paired it with rice. Since I cut the recipe in half I added the the extra onion soup to the rice water. No one complained! Thanks for a fun chicken recipe.

Very interesting flavors in this marinade. After the first bite I wasn't sure how I felt about this dish, but after a couple more bites I decided that I enjoyed the uniqueness of the flavors. You really do taste all of the flavors in the marinade. I think I would like this better with a bone-in/skin-on chicken breast. I also think this would be very good on the grill with the extra marinade basted on the chicken breasts. Made for June, 2009 Aussie/NZ Swap.

I marinated split bone-in/skin on split breasts and drumsticks for 24 hours, I patted them dry and cooked them on the grill, it took about 45 minutes as my grill was very hot. The chicken was moist and juicy, though if most of the marinade flavor was in the skin. We typically don't eat the skin but the glaze on the chicken came out so pretty and I had to take a few bites bc it was so good. My husband ate a cold drumstick with the skin later on in the evening, cold for the fridge and loved it. I think these would be great to cook ahead and bring on a picnic!
