Excellent marinade! My husband and I loved it! I didn't have tahini, so I subbed 2 Tbsp. of sesame oil which worked great. I also used 1/4 cup of Splenda instead of 1/2 cup because that would have proven to be waaay to sweet! I also used low sodium soy sauce. I cut the chicken into chunks for kabobs and let it marinate about 8 hours. Boy, was this ever good! It has a sweet, oriental flair to it and is "Absolutely Addictive". It's great paired with steamed broccoli, carrots, baby corn and rice.
I followed the recipe exactly, but something about the combination was a little off, for me. I liked that the Splenda kept the grill from flaring up, and the chicken had a nice color, but overall the taste was very sweet, with the tahini hard to detect. I wasn't happy with the little "crispy critters" that developed on the grill from the chopped cilantro leaves, and we lost the beauty of the sesame seeds as they slid off the meat. I feel this would work better as a sauce than a marinade.
Such a flexible recipe. I sub an equal amount of sesame oil for the sesame seeds. I use peanut butter instead of tahini. I use a little less splenda than directed and also use sugar for a separate batch for the rest of the family. Everybody is happy.
THIS WAS FABULOUS! Even my picky husband enjoyed this, and that is saying alot. I too subbed the Tahini for peanut butter. I will be making this again and again, thank you for a great marinade
Amazing! I used real surgar instead of splenda but other than that I followed exactly. The best marinade I have ever tasted. Thanks for sharing.
My husband said, "This is the best chicken I've ever put in my mouth!" I think that's saying something!!!
I substituted tahini with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, combined ingredients in a food processor, and marinated boneless, skinless chicken breasts for 36 hours. Served with sauce over speghetti squash. AMAZING!!! New favorite dish!!!
Good, but not as good as I thought it would be.
