    OK. SO WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THE BAY LEAF? Its in the ingredients but not the directions. As for the recipe it really sounds great. I don’t want to attempt it until the directions are complete. Lol. I’m not a chef so I’m really depending on the directions in its entirety. Thanks.

      Sorry for the late response.
      You are right, we forget to place the bay leaf in the direction. Thank you for your interest and your correction. Bon appetit!

      Break the bay leaves up and add to the marinade.
