The flavor combination is fantastic. But like all Martha Stewart recipes, even if you follow the recipe to the letter, it looks nothing like the picture. Mine looked someone spilled a pineapple Julius over some chicken and the texture of the skin was off putting. Will try again and trouble shoot my way out of it as I loved the flavor.
