    I spent a number of years working as a counselor in refugee shelters. One of the cooks gave me this recipe. It's delicious and even though there is a long list of ingredients, you will probably have most on hand! This is savory comfort food with a bit of a twist!

      This is a good recipe - very salty but plenty flavorful. I did not like the gravy, though, so I would not serve it with the chicken next time. I also added 1/4 cup olive oil to the marinade mixture because I did not think 2 Tbsp soy sauce was enough liquid to marinate the 2 lbs of chicken pieces. Overall, a good dish. Marinating the chicken imparts good flavor and keeps the chicken moist through baking. Thanks for posting! Made for Zingo! ZWT3.

      I loved the combination of seasonings on this. I wasn't really in love with the gravy, but I think the chicken was just as good without. It's a very interesting, very different flavor that I really enjoyed. Thanks for a great recipe!

      Wish there was a half star - this isn't a 3 star but it's not quite a 4 either. It does have nice flavour, but I think it would have been better (nicer presentation & easier to eat) if you used chicken breasts instead of chicken pieces.
