    we LOVE this marinade and can't imagine how someone doesn't like it on chicken. We use it on chicken and steak and the only problem is, we can no longer find it at our local grocer's (Kroger) in Michigan.

    This is the BEST marinade! I've tried many of the McCormick flavors and they are all good, yet this one stands out as the best. I've used it on chicken, pork and beef. I've added the ingredients called for and let the meat marinade in it overnight or even for the afternoon and it is awesome every single time. I've recently been using it as a rub without the wet ingredients and the flavor just bursts when you eat it. LOVE IT!!!

    My family LOVES this maranade! We use it with chicken thighs. However, I have to purchase it in Amazon or Ebay because we can't find it in our Dayton, Ohio area grocery stores.

    This is one of the better Grill Mates but doesn't remind me of beer at all. It actually has a light herb and citrus flavor to me. Good, nonetheless!
