    When I first left home I shared a flat with a chinese girl and this is one of the ways she would cook chicken. The marinade is sticky and yummy and smells wonderful.

      Truly wonderful! Used drumsticks and boneless thighs and think I will use all thighs next time. Juicy, dark, sticky, just as advertised. For the people who are having a hard time with it being runny, you probably aren't using Dark Soy Sauce. This is a different soy sauce, not regular soy sauce which is dark for sure. Dark soy sauce is sweeter. Regular soy sauce is just salty. Make a trip to an Asian grocery and purchase some Dark Soy Sauce. Another reason may be the fat from the chicken, I noticed it runny under the drumsticks with skin and stickier under the skinless thighs.

      This was really good! I actually used the chicken from soup, after it had been boiling for 45 min, but it into pieces and placed it in a roaster. I basted every 10 min for 30 min and it turned out really juicy and tasty. Thanks a lot!

      This was really good - I would have given it 5 stars but the skin ended up almost burned - I roasted a whole 5# chicken and it took so long to roast that the skin was not quite as good as I think individual pieces would have been, however the meat was really so good, and it was nice and moist. Next time I will do pieces like kiwidutch wrote the recipe . I made 2 changes - I followed the suggestion of using 1 teaspoon of sesame oil and 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and added a total of 3 cloves of garlic. I never did find a Dark Soy Sauce but I did find a Thick Soy Sauce at our local Asian Market - sure ended up tasting good.. This will be a keeper - I am going to try this using thighs and will review again - bet it gets 5 stars next time. I also can not wait to try it on pork tenderloin
