My husband Dan gets credit for creating this delicious marinade! Excellent with fish, also. Try it with a side of Spanish Rice Spanish Rice or my Royal Thai Rice Royal Thai Rice for a wonderful flavor combination. Recipe is easily halved. Note: Time does not include cooking the chicken.

I wish i had a camera,this recipe turned out really nice. I had to broil in the oven. I used boneless breasts as in the recipe. They came out browned and juicy. Delishious! I also made the thai rice as suggested,also delishious! I had some left overs and took them to my grandkids. Well they are very picky eaters, so they are a good judge of whats good. They also really loved these recipes. So its's a winner in our family! I thank very much for your recipes.

This was delicious! I cut the olive oil way down since there was only 2 of us and adjusted the rest of the ingredients also. Will be using this one again. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag Game 2011.

I was looking for a recipe to make pollo asado like you can buy in bags at the store. This recipe made with skinless boneless thighs grilled on the bar-be-que was exactly what I wanted!! Many Thanks to Dan and BecR for posting this recipe.
