    I've made this quite a few times with different marinating times and it's been great! I generally stick to the recipe, although this time I'm using much hotter peppers than jalapeno, so we'll see how that works! This is one of the few recipes where you can really taste the beer, nice and easy for a weeknight dinner. Thanks for posting!

    Delicious, tender, and juicy chicken... We are not on WW but thought we would give it a try. I used some Guinness and lots more garlic and jalapeno... I marinated them overnight and I actually grilled them since it was so nice outside! My BF is not a huge fan of 5 spice, but the flavor was not overpowering at all... very subtle and delicious. Thanks for posting!!!

    This was a good recipe, I let it marinate for about 6 hours and I baked it instead of broiling and it came out very moist and flavorful. I was a little nervous about the jalepenos because my hubby really can't handle hot but it wasn't as strong as I expected. Very good, I'll be making this again! Thank you mariposa!

    Great recipe for broiled chicken. I used boneless skinless chicken breast and let this sit in the fridge all last night. The flavor was of the chicken great! It was super simple and tasty, my favorite kind of recipe!
