I am interested in this recipe but I don't understand Step 4. Is this a misprint? Thanks.

Hi,

The way I understand it is to put in the oven on broil for 15 minutes. This will brown it and complete the cooking.

What marinade? Why should it be broiled if the chicken is already cooked until tender? I think there is a mix-up with another recipe.
