I was a little intrigued with this, as I have a caramel chicken recipe too, but it is very different. I took note of Jan's suggestion, and didnt add the salt, and I did add 2 tablespoons Hot Pepper Jelly. Turned out wonderfully!!!

I should have realised before I started cooking this tonight, that it was going to be really salty. When I make it again, I'm going to use reduced-sodium soy and throw in a sliced red chili. It's a great quick recipe and was lovely over rice, but I know we are going to be reaching for the water for a while tonight;-) A little less salty would earn it the 5th star.
