      I doubled the sauce quantity but otherwise did everything by the recipe. I was not too keen on the result - it was very salty, and the soya sauce taste was overpowering, even though I used the light sauce. Not sure what was wrong.

      Absolutely lovely recipe. Didn't have star anise but used 1/3 tsp 5 spice powder. Did raise the temperature of the oven to 450. Cooked chicken skin side down 25 minutes then skin side up for 20 minutes.Came out very brown. Also, put some cuts in the chicken so more flavor was absorbed. Wonderful... will make again for sure.

      I've made this twice in three days--my family loves it. It's flavorful and delicious. I used bone in whole leg quarters, ground ginger, cooking sherry, low sodium soy sauce, and dark sesame oil, but otherwise prepared as described. I increased the cooking time a bit for the larger bone in chicken pieces, which reduced and thickened the sauce a little. This will be in regular rotation for a while.
