This recipe is awesome I don’t use all the salt I think I use a 1/3. - 1/2 teaspoon I’ve used on chicken , steak,tuna steaks and pork Everyone I’ve cooked for is amazed at the flavor You can marinade for 30 mins or 5 days it’s all good

Big hit with my husband! Great recipe even my toddler loved it.
Leslie T 9 Jul 2017
This recipe is great! My chicken turned out super- moist, although I grilled the chicken and removed it before it was cooked fully through. I placed it in the oven at 285 degrees and completed the cooking cycle until done.
Steve Woodward 29 May 2017
It's a hit every time… My family begs me to marinade the chicken, pork or steaks in this wonderful marinade.
Christine D. 4 May 2017

Absolutely delicious and came out looking like the beautiful photo! Even my two somewhat picky kids thoroughly enjoyed. Will do again and again!
Keith s. 28 Sep 2016
this is an awesome marinade I have never had chicken with so much flavor and so little effort I did not change it at all and I would make it again a heartbeat
Allison L. 6 Sep 2016
This was absolutely FANTASTIC! I made it for our Labor Day picnic and everyone raved over it and asked what was in the marinade. I will absolutely make this quite a bit.
Hello Dorothy K. 26 Jul 2016
I loved this marinade....it was very tasty and the chicken was very moist and tender! It's a Keeper!
Y D. 30 Jun 2016
I had high hopes for this recipe and followed directions exactly. I marinated the chicken for 8 hours, it cooked perfectly and was juicy, but my husband and I can only say that the flavor was just ok - nothing to write home about and doubtful that I would make it again.
Mace H. 19 Jun 2016
Tasty marinade, turned out great with plenty of flavor. The you marinate the better. Will definitely use this again. I
Gemma G. 18 Jun 2016
Absolutely delicious! My family loved it. I baked it in the marinade and then used the marinade to make some delicious green beans. I put a little less soy sauce because that is our preference. Will definitely make again and again!
