I used skinless/boneless chicken thighs and they were great!! This marinade is a really good "go to" recipe and would be good for seafood or pork. We enjoyed these with rice and a fresh green salad. Made for ZWT8. Thanks FloridaNative!
This was great. I used chicken breasts and marinated all day. The chicken was very flavorful and juicy. I made for ZWT8 for The Fearless.
A very nice chicken recipe. We enjoyed the flavor and a nice low cal. recipe. We used chicken breasts and they worked great.
