    Delicious!!! I used this to marinade two boneless skinless chicken breasts and we all enjoyed the chicken marinaded and grilled, basting with the marinade in the beginning. I served them with a lemony pasta dish, green beans and homemade Italian bread for a wonderful meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe Hokies!! Made for Potluck Tag.

    Tasty! Used this with some chuck steak that I had in the freezer. It was very tender and I loved the sweet citrusy taste. Thanks for posting this Hokies!! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.

    Delish!! Really good on our grilled pork chops and I would like to try it on chicken too. I marinated for 8 hours and it was just right. Thanks! :)

    This was unbelievable how good it was. I liked the sweetness of it. Surprisingly, DH loved this. Cause usually he doesn't like meat that is a bit sweet. But for this one, he devoured it. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs. This was so moist and so tasty. Thanks Hokies. Made for 123 hit wonders.

    This is a great marinade. I used it with pork loin chops and they were wonderful. Loved the nice crisp flavor and think this would work well with chicken also. Into the grilling book it goes....
