    Very good, cooked 3 breasts the next day on the George Foreman in a few minutes. One of the tastiest chicken dishes I’ve made!

    Super easy and great flavor…definitely a keeper that I will go back to again and again in the future.

    After cooking these I’ll never by packaged seasoning again!!Great flavor!!

    I just made this today (minus the grape seed oil). Very tasty stuff. I would say it has a bit of an Asian taste to it. I used too much salt so it ended up being very salty. Less salt next time.

  5. This had a really good flavor! However, I created quite a bit of smoke trying to broil it. I used chicken breasts, though. Delicious!

    Delicious! Easy to make and well worth the marinating time. Only thing I’ll change next time is using half the salt called for.

    Do you have the nutritional content for this dish?

    I make this recipe using a 5 or 6 pound whole chicken in the crock pot for 5 or 6 hours. Comes out amazing, means plenty of leftovers for lunch for the week and a great base for homemade chicken stock! Great recipe!

  9. Do you flip the chicken over half through the broil time?

    Absolutely DELISH!! Where is the nutrition values:/?

    Best chicken marinade I’ve ever had! This is a new staple in our house.

    The nutritional value seems a little high for one serving. I put it into MyFitnessPal.com and for one serving it was more like 213 calories per serving. I did it per chicken breast instead of a quarter of a chicken.

    My bad.. I forgot to add the olive oil, but for one serving it came to 332 cals per serving.

    I took a 3lb chicken & roasted it using my grandmas settings (20 min per lb plus 20 min @ 350 degrees). Turned out perfectly! Best marinade I’ve ever tried

    Hi guys, I am a newbie to paleo :-D, when you use 2-3 pounds, do you double/triple the ingredients for the marinade?
