"Oh was this great! It looked so good when I took it out of the oven that I just had to take a picture of it!The Tang from the lemon juice was just perfect. Also this works great as a "dump" Recipe for OAMC. This was made about 3 weeks before I cooked it and defrosted in the fridge the night before."
"I only had four hours to marinate the chicken but it turned out great. I love this spice blend. Next time I will let the chicken marinate overnight! Thanks."
"We love this. We use a bit more garlic and bake it since we live in the city without a grill. Love the flavor, it's so unique."
"What a wonderful marinade - tastes like some of my fave Mediterranean restaurants. I adjusted to my personal taste - a bit more garlic and lemon, slightly less cinnamon (1.5 tsp), used hot smoked paprika, added some oregano. This is my new "go to" chicken marinade!"
"This created very delicious chicken! I will use this again & again. :) Thank you!"
"I have made this a few different times now and never remembered to review. What a great, easy marinade! I am vegetarian, so I actually used it on "fake" chicken Quorn cutlets. They marinate really fast, so I have never needed to leave them in for more than 30 minutes and still get great flavor. I have tinkered with the ratio of cinnamon and paprika a little bit, sometimes I like more cinnamon and sometimes I reverse it, depending on what side dishes I'm serving. Thanks for a fabulous, easy recipe!"
"This is an excellent marinade, no-fail, always turning out a delicious chicken dish. I've been using it for years now and can't understand that I never reviewed it before! Oh well! Today I have chicken breasts marinading that will be cubed and skewered. I did halve the cinnamon and added 1/4 tsp allspice for a change...let's see how that is!"
"This was delicious! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and let them marinate for 30 minutes. I reserved some for the next night and they were much better after marinating overnight. The first night I fried them in olive oil and the next night we grilled them. I didn't have Hungarian paprika, so I used regular. GREAT flavor!"
"I made this for some chicken breasts, and while the chicken came out incredibly tender, I felt like the cinnamon was a bit much. If I try this again, I think I will reduce that ingredient next time. Thanks for sharing!"
"I was really suprised at how good this marinade was, thinking that the cinnamon would overpowder the taste. I marinated skinless thicken thighs for about 4 hours and they came out quite tender and flavourful. I did not have to adjust this recipe at all. This is a treasure. Thanks for sharing!!"
"What an unexpected delight! I marinated chicken breasts overnight in this great marinade. The sweetness of the cinnamon was nicely balanced by the tang of the lemon juice and heat of the paprika and cayenne. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Bergy."
