Japanese Marinated Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Oolala

From my saved recipe box (never made though). I want to get this on-line so I can find it when I want to make chicken! Cook time doesn't account for 4 hours marination or more.

This was excellent!!!! I left the chicken in the marinade for 24 hours. I did not baste as it baked instead I poured the marinade over the chicken in the baking dish. The chicken came out perfectly baked, moist and full of flavor. I forgot use the cornstarch and oil and don't think you need it at all. But I may try it next time just to see if it makes any difference. Since I added the marinade to the baking dish there is no need for the oil. You really need to give this recipe a try! I served this with Recipe #89793 and Recipe #315967 I took pictures of the 3 together on the plate so will post later. I will be making this again!! Made for *Zaar Cookbooks Tag 2008* game
