The kids said it was "delicious!" I poured some of the sauce over the chicken after 30 minutes of baking and it gave the chicken a wonderful flavor. It was sweet but not overpowering. I may add just a little more soy sauce next time. Although, I didn't actually measure my ingredients. We will absolutely add this to the favorites list. Thanks!!
This was an excellent dish!! I used chicken thighs and I browned them in my cast iron skillet first, then poured the sauce over and popped the whole thing in the oven to finish. I also sprinkled some toasted sesame seeds over them before putting them into the oven. Hubby loved it as much as I did!
I made this recipe for supper tonight, but in my big rush I forgot to add the soy sauce. It was sooo good we may have it again tomorrow, without soy sauce again! The sauce was quite garlicky at first but was mellowed out and perfect after sitting for 15 minutes or so. This is definitely a recipe my husband and I will crave! Thanks!
So easy, and so delicious! Even one of my housemates (a notorious food-fussy who ordinarily turns her nose up at anything with "ingredients" or "flavor" in it) heaped praises on it. I will definitely make this again, many times.
Wonderful recipe! Great taste. Hubby thought it was too sweet. I thought it was tasty! Thanks :)
Thanks for such a great recipe! I did double the garlic and I used flour instead of cornstarch. I baked them in the oven and should have added the sauce sooner than I did - I added it for the last 10 minutes only.
This dish was absolutely lovely. I used chicken wings and also basted the wings with the sauce for the last 30 minutes of the cooking time. I sprinkled the wings with some sesame seeds in the last 15 min. The flavour was amazing. Oh, I also ran out of cornstarch and substituted flour in equal amounts. Thank you for a great recipe!
This was wonderful!!! I added twice the garlic, as well as a bit of ginger and cayenne, and it was great. I served it with mixed veggies and jasmine rice... the sauce was nice over it!!
Tai, I loved this recipe! First though, the soy sauce is listed as an ingredient but not on the directions. I added it with the water. Here is what I did with this recipes. I had only 6 gi-normous legs/with skin on, that I put on the grill over indirect heat for 30 minutes. Made the sauce as directed, then basted it over the legs on the grill, turning them and basting about every 10 minutes for about another 40 minutes. The legs were moist and juicy and the sauce got sticky and carmelized. These legs were awesome...cant wait for the kids to try them when they get home. This would be a great sauce to do wings as appys on the grill. Thanks Tai!
my boys and i loved this recipe. my husband liked the sauce, but not the fact that i used dark meat. i will use the sauce with chicken breasts for him next time around. i found after cooking the chicken and pouring the sauce over it, that it absorbed the flavor of the sauce better when allowed to cook an additional 20 minutes, covered, in the oven. also, regarding the sauce - i increased the water to 1 cup and the soy sauce to 4-5 tablespoons as it was a bit too sweet for my taste. overall...excellent!
