Very salty,I would recommend that less soy sauce. We only marinated for 6 hours, I would recommend 3 hour soak.

I love this recipe! It has amazing flavors that are mouthwatering. You know when your husband comes in from work, and wants to know what smells so amazing, you have a winner on your hands. I didn't have to change a thing about this recipe. The kids loved it too, which is always a plus.
