SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
This is a great recipe and I realize that it's a reduced sugar version of Bessy's Zesty Grilled Garlic-Herb Chicken (one of my favorites that I've made a number of times) but when converting 1/2 cup of sugar from the original recipe 1/2 cup of Splenda should be 1/4 cup. I also eliminate the saffron and it doesn't make a difference in the recipe. I pound the chicken down to 1/2 inch, cut the oil down to 3/4 cup, put everything into a ziploc bag and marinate it for a few hours. The chicken gets carmelized due to the sugars, comes out moist and it's definitely zesty as the name states. It's delicious and I usually serve it with Penne from Heaven from this site.
The saffron kills this marinade. Too bad!
I substituted the splenda with 1/3 cup of brown sugar, left out the saffron because its more valuable than gold up here in Canada. To counteract the sweetnees of the sugar and honey I added the zest and juice of 1 lime, and a 1/4 cup of orange juice. I also cut the oil in 1/2. It came out amazing, moist and very tasty
This had a good flavor. I used about 1/3 c of brown sugar, no saffron and cut back on the oil. I'll cut the oil back even more next time, maybe 2/3 c. Husband liked this easy dish.
This is a great recipe because of previous comments I reduced the amount of splenda and oil. My guests can't eat things too spicy so I also reduced the red pepper, but would add more back for just my family. I did not have saffron, but it still turned out great! The only odd thing was that the splenda clumped up, so I heated the mixture in the microwave for 30 sec. and it smoothed it right out. Everyone LOVED the flavor.
I did not have Splenda so I used sugar and loved it! Will defiantly be making this again.
This was a great dish! I couldn't find saffron anywhere so I went without and it still turned out wonderfull. Also added a 1/2 tsp black pepper. Had a nice zip, but not too spicy. My kids loved it!
Very good!!! This recipe was simple, fast and tasted amazing. Everyone in the house loved it!
