This was delicious. Nice heat and sweetness. I let my chicken sit in marinade overnight.

This was an awesome and easy to use marinade. I made a few changes to my own since we all have different tastes. Left out the mustard and butter, used half the curry it called for. Use it on chicken breast and pan fried it. Came out delicious

This is a simple recipe and the chicken comes out really tender but the flavor doesn't pop enough for me, too mild but I enjoyed it and will probably serve this again.

I have to admit, this is a fast and very flavorful marinade. 10min to make and let the chicken sit in it overnight. BBQ until seared and then dip it it back in the mix every time you go to flip. If your heat is set right and pulled off the grill when the center is 160F then you end up with a caramelized tender chicken that has more flavor than most anything you get in a restaurant. I swap the butter for olive oil or penunt oil and cut the salt in half or less.

I used this marinade on my rostisserie chicken and it turned out delicious.. I will definitely use this again.

I made this as written (light on the red pepper - toddlers eating) and loved it! It only had about 45 min to defrost while marinating and it was still very flavorful. Next time I'll marinate it longer for even more flavor. Definitely in the meal rotation!
