  1. Actually, I would bring reserved marinade to a full, rolling boil for several minutes and THEN using it as a basting sauce towards the end of the cooking process. A fully cooked marinade on cooked meat should not cause any problem.
  2. My only problem with this recipe is the suggested reuse of the marinade as a basting sauce. You should never, NEVER, use a marinade used with poultry over as a basting sauce. Because of cross contamination. I would suggest making double of the sauce and then you would have sauce for the marinade and basting.
  3. This came out very much like BBQ chicken. I used boneless breasts (what I had) and added a few extra cloves of minced garlic along with about 1/4 cup of chopped red onion. I halved the marinade (minus the onion) and used the reserved to baste the chicken as it baked adjusting the baking time accordingly. (4)
  4. I reserved some of the marinade sauce so as not to re-use the sauce the chicken was soaking in. We thought this was just so-so though. There doesn't seem to be much oomph to it, even with all of the ingredients that go into it. If I were to make it again I would probably spice it up a little more, tweak tweak....<br/>Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
