I made this a couple of times. The ginger gives the chicken a nice flavor. This last time, I doubled the sauce and used chicken breasts with the bone in. Also, prior to cooking, I marinated the chicken with season salt, onion powder, garlic powder, garlic pepper, caynenne pepper, and italian seasoning. Instead of broiling, I baked at 375 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. sprinkled the remaining sauce and broiled for about 10 minutes at the end. The chicken was flavorful and very moist. Will make again this way. Thanks for posting.
I grilled my chicken breast and also used a boned, skinless breast. Very good glaze and next time I think I will add some hot sauce to this. Quick and easy to do. Made for PAC '10.
