    This is a fantastic recipe..especially made on the grill. I'm concerned with the comment made by PJBAHR who said they saved the marinade and added pineapple tidbits and served on the side with the chicken. Please don't EVER reuse a marinade as a condiment or dipping sauce that raw chicken has been marinating in UNLESS you boil it first! run the risk of salmonella poisoning. (You should do this with any type of marinade, no matter what kind of meat is used). Thanks for the great recipe!  -  01 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very tasty. Made a couple of changes to the 2nd round to suit my family's taste. Added 2 tablespoons sherry, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, 1/4 teaspoon fresh finely ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon fresh pressed garlic. With the additional seasonings, this recipe is a power punch of flavor!!! Yum!  -  16 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Instead of BBQ'ing, I marinated the chicken for about two hours, then "fried" it in a 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. I made a lot of extra marinade and warmed it up with some pineapple chunks. I served it over white rice, and used the extra marinade for a dressing for the rice. This recipe was incredible, and a huge hit at our dinner party. I can't wait to have it again!  -  19 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
