    This one is my favorite. Marinate boneless skinless chicken thighs . Grill over High heat. I used pineapple juice instead of water on the directions.......Awesome

    I have turned my whole family onto the addictive flavor of this seasoning. I mix it with balsamic vinegar. It is the bomb!!!

    I absolutely love this seasoning. We add olive oil and let our chicken or pork chops marinate and they turn out amazing!

    I prepared the marinade according to the directions using rice vinegar, then added about 1/2 cup oj, a handful of fresh chopped cilantro, 2-3 chopped chipotle chilies canned in adobo sauce...poured it over chicken breast and let marinade 24 hours or so. Then grilled on high heat. Very juicy and full of flavor.

    Must say I was impressed. I used slightly less product for 2 lbs of bnls, sknls thighs - probably 3/4 of the package just to make sure it wasn't too salty. Marinated for about 4-5 hours before grilling on a charcoal grill. Really good flavor, smoky with hints of lime and garlic. You can eat it as is, or even chop it up and make chicken tacos with various toppings. Will definitely make again - no leftovers. ; )

    Loved this marinade on pork chops prepared as recommended. Also loved on grilled chicken breasts using variation of oj, oil, & honey.
