    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I have been making this chicken for years, it is one of my family's favorite dishes. When preparing the sauce, the ginger and all the ingredients may be adjusted to suit taste. The sauce is prepared ahead of time on top of the stove, and just thickened before adding to the chicken, this can even be done well in advance, even in the morning. Once you get a taste of this, it will become one of you favorite chicken dishes! Wonderful served up with white rice. Prep time is for making the sauce, cooking time is for the chicken.

      Wonderful chicken dish!! I used bone in breast instead of whole chickens and used 2 cups brown sugar. I also some red pepper flakes. YUMMY Kitten as usual.

      This recipe has positives and negatives. Overall, I rate it a 3 b/c it is incredibly sweet. However, if you are an expert cook and able to adjust ingredients effectively then it could be a good recipe. The flavor was marginal and my family was neutral on whether they liked it or not. I used 4 tsp ground ginger, 2 1/2 cups of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of honey. The honey still seemed to dominate the flavor. I don't think that I will make this again.
