DH was not too sure about this recipe when I told him yesterday. But when he ate it, he told me 5 stars. He loved it. It's really good. I let the chicken in the marinade a good 8 hours. Thanks Parsley :) Made for All you can cook buffet

This would have been a 5, but the "marinade" was way too thick. I would have had to paste it on. At another reviewer's suggestion, I added some chicken broth to thin it out a little (and more soy sauce). I used white vinegar and no pepper flakes. It marinaded for over 24 hours and bcz it's a blizzard outside, I cooked at 375 for 40 minutes (the breasts were large). My 7 yo (who doesn't want meat lately) ate it without a problem. Everyone liked it. Tagged in Fav's of 2009. I tried the leftover sauce (unused) on a salad and it was awesome! Going in my salad cookbook too.
