    WONDERFUL! Made the marinade as directed. Couldn't grill due to rain so I simply threw everything in a non-stick pan and cooked it down until the chicken was cooked through. The chicken breasts I had were rather thick so I ended up having to add some water a few times in order to draw out the cooking time... I really think that helped to intensify the flavours! The spice was perfect for us! This will be a regular occurrence for me now!!

    Very good, moist chicken - I followed the recipe and it was good - I guess I was expecting more flavor. I marinated overnight, and grilled on the George Forman grill. I think next time I will try on the stove and see if I can't get a more cooked in flavor. Very easy recipe!

    This is a great blend of flavors and really excites your taste buds! Add that fact that it's quick and easy - and it's a keeper for sure! I halved the marinade and used 1 lb. of boneless chicken tenderloins. They marinated all day. Then I sauteed in a little oil on top of the stove. I added about 2 T. of the marinade and simmered to reduce it; this intensified the flavor.

    We liked this, but it was a bit too tangy for our liking. I think next time I'll reduce the lime juice a bit. Five stars for the ease of preparation, though :)<br/>Thanks for posting!<br/>Made for My Diabetic Recipes / Diabetes Forum

    Very nice indeed, have made it twice. I also reduced the amount of soy sauce and I tried using regular mustard, fresh garlic and a little white wine instead of lime juice for a variation. It tasted great.

    kaywise This was absolutely yummy but I used 1/2 lime and 1/2 lemon juice and added wholegrain mustard instead of mustard powder and horseradish cream fantastic. The whole family loved it defintely use this recipe again. Thank you.
