    WOW!!! One of the best prepared chicken items I’ve ever had. I grilled mine in the BBQ, skin side up using direct heat. When it was just about done, I turned to skin side down on direct heat for five minutes. Best BBQ’d chicken ever…moist and full of flavor!!!!

    I baked mine and I did not like at all. It was moist but the legs and thighs were too mushy. I also did not like the taste. I bought the coffee one too to put on the grill. Maybe I will like that better.

    I thought this would be delicious, however this chicken, while moist, had the strangest aftertaste.
    In addition the texture was just off. Sort of rubbery.
    We have tried it twice now over a period of 6 months since I thought the first time was perhaps a fluke. But sadly, they both were bad. 🙁

    I’ve tried it..first time was delish!
    Second time…better!
    The second time I read the! …leaving the marinade with the chicken while baking!
    The best…next to rotisserie from Costco..
    2 thumbs up…IMO

    Followed directions and very disappointed. Minimal flavor and small bird for the price. Also packaging hard to cut open and get the flavoring out. Very messy. No way will I buy this again.

    Loved this chicken!!! I was a bit unsure buying a $13 already marinated chicken, but it did not disappoint. The flavor was perfect, not overly flavored and salty at all. I followed the directions on the package and cooked it in the oven. It was a huge hit in my house and I will be buying it again!

    Perfect! After a long weekend travel I picked this up at 8:30 Sunday night and threw it directly in the Sous Vide (it’s packaged perfectly for that!). I woke at 5:30 Monday morning with it ready to be pulled apart and tossed in my salad* for lunch. The meat was amazing hot, cold, and even reheated the next day.

    *Add to romaine, yellow and red pepper, avocado, and TJ’s amazing Cilantro Salad Dressing. This meal is a real winner!

    Off the hook great!!. Slow cooked on the grill – Indirect heat for about 40 min. This brine would be awesome with a turkey.

    Have any of you noticed that the thigh meat stays pink even though I’m sure it’s fully cooked? I am thinking the marinade dyes the meat pink.

    Overly marinated. The bones were squishy and soft due to too much marination. Chicken itself was tasty but had only a touch of lemon and could barely discern the rosemary. I probably won’t buy again–especially given how much per pound you are paying for it.

    Used an Instant Pot to cook a hearty soup with this chicken.

    Water, lentils, bell peppers, potatoes, onions, chicken. Very good, very hearty.

    Pros: very easy to make, set up in my air fryer and it was done in just under the hour. Decently marinaded, didn’t dry out, skin was crispy. My biggest issue though, is that it’s very sweet. I checked the package to see if there was maybe balsamic in it, but I think it might actually be the brown sugar in the mojo marinade. It was just a surprising flavor given that it’s touted as lemon, which is tart.

    Outstanding! So tender and Juicy! I cooked it on my Weber genesis on indirect heat and it was spectacular! Crispy skin, full of flavor, maybe a bit expensive but so worth it! Took about an hour to cook.! Will definitely buy again!
