  • My family loves this dish! No need to change a thing! I have baked the chicken with the marinade in a baking dish at 350 for about 30 minutes. It's perfect! I put the extra or baked marinade on rice and spinach. Super yummy!!! - 9/8/15

  • the chicken amount does not seem listed right. How can the protein only be 4.5 grams? You might want to double check that.
