    This was really bland.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This was very good... I marinaded the chicken overnight with some garlic cloves, the leftover limes, and cayanne pepper and used it to make soft shell tacos - DELICIOUS!  -  29 Sep 2008


    This had no discernible smell or taste other than the fresh coriander I used. I marinated it for 1 hour and then added ginger and garlic in the hopes of giving it some added 'zing', but it just didn't work. And I don't consider salt and pepper 'spices'. My guests (we were 6) were unanimously underwhelmed. I won't be making it again.  -  29 Sep 2008
