    My husband and I LOVED it!! I grilled it on my Foreman Grill and it came out perfect!! The meat is moist and delicious, the seasonings are perfect. I sliced the chicken into strips, measured out 4 oz. and served it on a bed of brown rice with asparagus spears. Adding grilled pineapple next time!! - 7/4/08

    I really enjoyed this! I think I will pick thinner chicken breasts next time. I did tenderize them a little, yet they needed it a bit more. I also might double the marinade JUST to cover them better. Thanks!!! - 10/5/09

    Chicken is a great diet food, although this one does not taste like one. You would think it had loads of calories with this lovely taste. - 9/12/09

    This recipe sounds fantastic; I was wondering if it would work for a steak? I'm doing a LOT of grilling and dry rubs; low sodium soy sauce is a staple. Hubby lost 14 lbs in 2 1/2 weeks; portion control is the answer! (That, and delicious recipes!) Thank you for the variety; that makes diets work! - 7/3/09

    This was a wonderful recipe. The chicken turned out juicy and you could cut it with a fork! And my two 7-year olds raved about it even more- a true test of a good recipe! - 8/3/08

    The combo of the chicken, pineapple, and rice (which I don't eat very often) is very good. I will use the extra pineapple to mix with cottage cheese. Yummy. Doreen - 6/22/08

    This chicken was amazing! The flavor was sooo good. My husband and son really liked it as well. I will be making this chicken over and over again. I will have to try using pork and beef with the marinade as well! - 6/11/08
