  1. Definitely need to marinate this overnight. I was in a rush to make supper so not all of the chicken on the skewers had the flavor but the ones at the bottom of the bowl …. OMG… brought me back to my childhood. Thanks for the perfect recipe!

    1. Julius – did you find the flavor similar to a Chicken Adobo? I’ve been trying for quite a while to find a recipe that really has that same flavor, and I’ve not been successful! This one seems like it might be really close.

    When I put all this into WW it tells me is 5 points if you make 16 skewers, but the recipe says the serving size is 4oz, which leads me to believe there should only be 10 skewers (40oz of next to start with), which makes the points 8. Am I doing something wrong in my calculations? We are eating this tonight for dinner. 

    1. Are you using the recipe builder? The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

  3. I’ve seen several people ask about the calorie count.  I looked up just the 4 oz  serving for Tyson boneless pork ribs on my fitness pal app.  They are 140 calories & 5 grams of fat.  So maybe that will give us something to go by. 

  4. Omg!!! This is by far the best marinade EVER!  We marinated it for 2 days bc we went out and got back too late to make them and I think it made it even better. So tender and flavorful. My husband isn’t the easiest person to wow when it comes to new recipes. Usually he’ll say “Yeah it’s good” or “It’s pretty good” but tonight I got “Wow. This pretty damn good”!  Thank you for this. It will be made again and again.

  6. I love these so much! I have made them several times. As for a side, I usually have corn on the cob

  7. I make this ALL the time because my husband and I love it! I live in place where pork products are not sold, so we use an incredibly lean cut of beef to make this recipe. It has slightly more calories than pork, but not too much. If you're anti-pork or can't get it, its an excellent substitute. The longer you let it marinade, the better it is!
