quick weeknight dinners work for me! 3/25/08- this was made for freezer tag in the OAMC forum and they asked me to post the following, "To freeze: Prepare recipe as directed through step 3. Place chicken in a freezer bag and seal. Pushing out as much air as possible. Allow sauce to cool and place in its own freezer bag. Place both bags inside one large bag, seal, label and freeze. To serve: Thaw in fridge. Cook as directed in recipe. The cooked chicken can be frozen as well. Just allow to cool, then place in a freezer bag."

Very good dinner and easy to make too. The chicken had a great sweet/oriental flavor and I think it would make an awesome chicken sandwich too, that is if there were any leftovers. I cooked the chicken for about 15 minutes in the broiler and I'm sure it would also be awesome on the grill!!
I used this marinade/sauce with boneless/skinless thighs. Made for a very nice mid-week meal with minimum fuss. I found I needed the entire 1/2 hour cooking time. Lots of pan juices too to be used up over steamed rice.
Chia, I made this with leftover turkey. I added the spices to the sauce and just mixed in the cooked turkey. My DH loved it! I served it with brown rice and a broccoli and cauliflower mix. Thanks!
