    TeresaS's Note:

    This is out of my "Hot Barbecue" cookbook. It says that if you omit the green onions and cilantro you can make a large batch of the marinade and it will keep indefinitely in the refrigerator, just add the green onion and cilantro to the portion that you use that day. It is excellent on spareribs and firm-fleshed fish. Serve with fried rice and a salad. The cooking time does not include marinating time.

      Though we were divided between a 4 star and a 5 star, this was a nice moist, flavorful dinner. Thought that it could of been a little bit spicier, but the marinade and the overall result of the juicy, tender chicken with the marinade was the decider. Overall a good recipe. Made for PRMR tag.

      Thank you for sharing your recipe Theresa. We really enjoyed the chicken prepared this way. I used chicken legs and wings from a large chicken and was very happy with the results. I did marinade overnight. The chicken had a subtle spicy flavor and was moist and tender.

      I really enjoyed this chicken. Actually, I had to make it twice since I burned the skin horribly the first time (note- only cook this skin side down long enough to get nice grill marks) and didn't feel like I'd gotten enough of the flavor to give a fair review. The second time I made it, I used a butterflied game hen and let in sit in the marinade for 24 hours. It was very good, the meat was moist, but as another reviewer noted, not as spicy as I would have expected, especially since I doubled the chili sauce. Overall, a yummy recipe that I would be happy to make again.
