    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You may use mixed chicken pieces in place of the legs for this recipe, also you can use about 3 to 3-1/2 pounds chicken wings, separated in half at the joint in place of the chicken pieces to serve at a get-togther, see note below --- I always add in a sliced green bell pepper and a sliced onion on the bottom of the pan but that is optional. Serve this with cooked rice. You will *love* this, I promise, the sauce is delicious and the amount is enough for up to 3 pounds of chicken legs or pieces :)

      This was absolutely awesome. The only thing I didn't do was add the cornstarch as the sauce was quite thick - but I found out that you really need it because the sauce thins out as it bakes in the oven. Thanks Kittencal for a wonderful recipe!

      This was really good! A tad on the sweet side for us, but that is an easy fix :) I used a cut up whole chicken, that worked really well. I might add a touch of fresh grated ginger next time, as I felt this had an asian touch due to the soy sauce. Served it with oven roasted cauliflower, which was good with the sauce :) Very nice dinner, one I will repeat! Thank you Carol another keeper.

      I thought this was a great recipe and will definitely make again. I did make a few changes based on what I had on sauce for teriyaki, dark corn syrup for dark molasses, peach perserves in place of apricot. I took the chicken off the bone after it was cooked, cut up the meat along with the green peppers strips and put it over rice for my son. I think I'll do that with all of the meat next time. I had a package of 13 drumsticks but only cooked 7 and now wishing I would have cooked all of them because there was a ton of sauce and this will make great leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Thanks! Made this again and LOVE it...attaching pictures. :)
