    I did not have soy sauce so I used Worcestershire sauce. I also added a little BBQ spice and Nando’s lemon and herb sauce.

    The chicken was delicious and full of flavor. I used other's tips and omitted the salt. I also used the low sodium soy sauce. My family really enjoyed the chicken and we will make this dish again.

    Soooo good!!! I didn’t add salt because it was optional. But I did everything else to the T. Delicious, the chicken was sooo tender and the flavor was perfect!!!

    Was very good. I marinated the chicken for two days just to prep ahead.

    Amazing! Next time I’ll use bone in chicken instead of tenderloins; it’s just what I had in stock at the moment so it required less time to cook. HOWEVER it still hit the spot!

    It was really good but I only had chicken breasts and it didn’t come out as good as when I’ve made it w bone-in chicken. Ate it with Basmati rice. I’ll def be making it again.
