Our family thought this was ok, but we weren't all that impressed. Too salty, for sure.

Absolutely wonderful! I have made this dish, and even got rave reviews from some of my Guamanian friends. A must try...a little time consuming, but well worth it!

The flavor was a little strong for me. I think next time I won't marinade overnight. But I'd definitely make it again.

I helped my sister make this chicken recipe for a New Year's Eve party snack. It was delicious! A lot of fun to make! I tried a variation with honey to make it sweeter, turned out great! Love you sis!!

It was ok but I've had better. I think I will keep looking for the perfect recipe.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Moist and tender, flavorful and perfectly browned. I took the extra time to make sure the tendons and connecting tissues were removed. It was worth the time spent!
