"This chicken is definitely zesty and a bit sweet with a nice touch of garlic. I omitted the saffron as did a lot of others and cut the oil down to 3/4 cup. Other than that I didn't change a thing. I ..." See morepounded the chicken down to 1/2 inch and let it marinate for a few hours. The marinade didn't soak through, but the chicken was nice and tender and the outside was carmelized. It looks great and tastes even better. This goes very nice with pasta. I served it with Penne from Heaven and a nice tossed salad. "
"SO GOOD! Saffron is a bit expensive but luckily I had some. It doesn't really add much flavor so with or without is fine. Also try this recipe without sugar and honey it's still really good. *HINT*..." See more You only need enough olive oil to coat."
"definately delish. I normally don't like anything charred, but the "char" is just carmolized sugar... it's my new favorite marinade. We barbequed chicken and had it as a main corse, and i also have us..." See moreed the George Foreman to cook the chicken in this marinade and then sliced it up for salads. Highly recomended :)"
