I am so grateful for this recipe! I get tired of chicken, but this has perked it up for me. I think its the lime juice that gives it a slight exotic flavour, used hot chili sauce, and served it with rice. I marinated a couple of drumsticks with the breasts for several hours and it even made its own juice to spoon over the rice. Thanks a million!

This made incredibly moist and tender chicken (and I started with the cheap frozen kind from a bag)! I made enough changes that I don't want to give stars: yellow onion rather than red, had to sub for the chili sauce, had to use dried powdered ginger, and added 5 cloves of garlic to the onion. I ended up with 2 days of marinating time because of an unexpected night out. I decided to just saute in a skillet (briefly on high, then low simmer) rather than bake this, and I added some mixed vegetables towards the end. I served this with a green salad and brown rice. I will make this again because of how well the chicken turns out. Thank you.
