This is fantastic, and even if the list of the ingredients is long, you probably have it all in your kitchen. I cut up a whole chicken, as that is what I had and made it with that, bones in, because I was too lazy to take them out! Fantastic! Makes a lot of really tasty sauce too, plenty to put over rice and maybe broccoli. Tastes rather Asian to me, no doubt because of the ginger. This is a definite, easy, winner! Would be good with just a heap of wings too, or any other pieces you would have.

This recipe is a winner. I made it exactly as stated using boneless, skinless chicken thights. The recipe is so easy and tastes so good. I will be making again. Thanks for posting this recipe. Do you have any more worn pieces of paper in your recipe box!!!!!!! I also want to add that the leftover sauce is absolutely delicious the next day on oven barbecued chicken wings recipe 20960.

Very nice recipe with an Asian flair. I made the recipe a little different, but I'm sure the results are similar. I substituted apple sauce for the apple juice, tomato sauce for the ketchup, and eliminated the cornstarch and water called for at the end of the recipe. I seared my thighs on my stovetop grill, just to brown. Then I put them in my crockpot, made up the sauce with my substitutions, and poured it over the thighs. I let it all simmer on high in the crockpot for around 4 hours. The sauce thickened up nicely without the cornstarch. Will use this recipe again. Would be lovely over just about any type of meat.

5 Stars all the way - so easy to make! And next time I'm going to make rice to go with this because the sauce was so so good!

This is a new favorite at my house. I make extra sauce to serve with brown rice, and it's great with green veggies of any kind. It also freezes well. Thanks for a super recipe!

I made this for dinner tonight and it was really delicious and easy to prepare. It reminds me a little of General Tso's chicken or something of that sort. I used half white wine and half apple juice and kept everything else the same. Even my picky 2 1/2 year old daughter said, "More please!" after she finished her piece. Thank you for a great recipe!
