Wonderful chicken! I scaled the marinade down for one large bone in chicken breast and let it marinate for about 6 hours. The result was a delicious, flavorful and moist dinner. Thanks for posting such a great recipe which I will make often. Made for ZWT7 Golden Gourmets.

Delicious chicken! I used boneless skinless breasts, and I marinated them overnight. After grilling them on my indoor grill, I used them for Asian-inspired grilled chicken sandwiches. The chicken turned out very moist and flavorful, and it smelled wonderful as it was cooking. Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7
