This is just like paper wrapped chicken from Chinese restaurants. My kids love to make and eat these. Very easy! Time estimates don't include marination.

These are strangely addictive little morsels. I found them a little tedious to put together until I got an assembly line going. I used a homemade hoisin sauce which I think has more flavor than store-bought. DH did not care for them, but he could not put his finger on the reason.

These were okay- but weird. Beforehand- I marinated at room temp. for 3 hours. When we were wrapping them, DD got some on her fingers and tasted it. She said it was awesome. Then, once they baked, there was a "strange" taste to them. Maybe it's the fact that they are baked in foil??? IDK- but DH could not eat them AT ALL.

I didn't really this. I marinated it overnight but it was still a but bland. I was looking for a more Chinese flavor with this and was surprised that it was so bland given the pungent smell of the ingredients.My husband thought it was okay but I won't make this again.
