    This was great! I made with bone-in chicken breasts and legs. It was a little spicy (I love!) but not too much. I took the skin off and shredded a large breast for my picky-eating nephews. They didn't seem to notice the heat. Will definitely make again!

    This is similar to a recipe I have long enjoyed - only better! The pepper flakes are perfect for just the slightest kick. I did not feel they were 'vinegary' in the least, but I did only marinate 3 1/2 hours. Be sure to make a lot because the cold leftovers make for an awesome lunch, at home or to pack! Yummmmmmm.

    cut marinade in half. grilled 1 whole chicken with backbone removed and opened flat. i guess it was just ok. not sure if i'll make it again or not. could taste the vinegar at first, but then didn't notice as i ate. maybe if you're from the regions as some of the other reviewers, you might understand the flavors more. ?

    This has become a favorite of my whole family. The longer marinated the better. We love it!! A great meal for entertaining!

    You're right...the vinegar is overwhelming at first. Maybe need to add more chicken? Thought it was a good meal and you do get used to the vinegar. I served with pinto beans and grilled vegetables. Nice combo

    Great recipe. I was raised in Raleigh, NC, and our family have always grIlled chickens very much like this. After marinating, I suggest pouring the marinade into a saucepan and boil for a few minutes with a stck of butter to make a great mopping sauce for the chicken while on the grill, and for the table too.

    Very good. Made with chicken breasts. Will make again and again.

    I give this 5 stars for ease and convienence. I cut recipe in half and used boneless skinless. I didn't find the vinegar overwhelming at all.

    What a quick and easy way to prepare chicken! Followed the recipe exactly and served with corn on the cob. Perfect flavoring. Next time will have to double the recipe so we have leftovers.

    OUTSTANDING!!!!! With it being Summer, I'm really looking for light meals where I don't have to turn on the oven. I have one of those stovetop EZ pro grills so I decided to give this a shot. I was a little skeptical with all the vinegar and no garlic (how can you make chicken with NO GARLIC???) but this was FABULOUS!! I did taste the vinegar at first but it was not overwhelming to me. I really really liked the flavor! I cut the recipe in half and used 4 + 4 boneless and skinless thighs and breasts. I will definitely be making these again!
