Great flavor to this chicken. Make smaller one to be served as appetizers. Nice variety of textures. If you can't find jicama use water chestnuts but run boiling water over them to get rid of the tinny taste

I made the mistake of using regualr soy sauce and it was too salty. I just cut the chicken into strips and after marinating the chicken I baked it in the sauce. I put it in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes and served it over rice. Very good.
