Oh man, this chicken is awesome! I didn't think the flavor would be that strong with only a few hours marinating time but they were amazing! I'm obsessed with the chicken wings from Chinese restaurants and have tried many times to re-create them with no sucess; now I finally have the recipe :) Thanks so much for posting, I will be making these again and again.
I used this recipe using 20 boneless with skin, chicken thighs, about 5 pounds. I doubled the recipe and marinated them overnight. I steamed them all in one batch for 1 hour and then ended up refrigerating them overnight. I coated them with cornstarch and deep fried them. The flavor was sooooo good and my family loved them, this is a keeper for sure. I want to use this marinade on chicken wings next, the chicken tasted just like chicken wings from chinese restaurants. I ordered "The People's Republic of China" cookbook on ebay for $6.99 and can't wait to try new recipes. My family loves chinese food so I'm always trying to find recipes that taste like the chinese restaurants. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.........Debbie
