    Very moist. I would probably add more lime next time but it is definitely being added to my do again list!

    I would make the recipe again but would use fresh ginger and garlic. I substituted chicken broth for the wine, and felt there was not enough presence of the citrus, so would use the zest of the lime and maybe a teaspoonful of dried chili flakes in the marinade. It was a bit bland for my family's taste but we felt that we could play with the recipe and have a good product.

    I made this with no changes to the recipe and it was completely tasteless. No one in the family liked it. It was moist, but boiled chicken is moist. I want something with a little flavor.
