    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

    A delicious teriyaki marinade, and I didn't even miss the oil that much, although the outside was a bit dry after cooking. I will make this again, but plan to cut back on the honey because it overpowered the other ingredients a little. I used fresh garlic instead of minced from a jar. Delicious! - 2/25/10

  • Very moist and tender. Only thing I would recommend would be to marinate the chicken longer than 4 hours. I suppose the longer it marinates the more of the citrus flavor would come through. Also, fresh ginger root can be stored in the freezer then grated or sliced as needed. - 6/25/13
