This was definitely the winner tonight. All five of us (including 2 picky kiddo eaters) enjoyed this. I used a Serrano pepper because that was the best option available. It wasn't too hot/spicy for children, and we'll be sure to make this one again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Besides using a little less vinegar (scared because of ther reviews) I followed the recipe. After an hour the sauce still didnt turn into a glaze. Don't know what went wrong, but the flavor was good, nothing special. Won't be making this again...sorry.

Overall this was a pretty cool recipe. although after eating two of the chicken legs, the third one tasted more sour than sweet. I think next time I will use a bag of chicken wings and use more sugar. I am wondering if anyone else had this problem because I think it may be due to the balsamic vinegar. I also cooked it all over medium heat while covered which really glazed the chicken well and whenever the sauce started getting gloppy I would poor in a bit of chicken broth. Also I sprinkled the chicken with sesame seeds and served with white rice and steamed veggies! after a few changes this will be a regular recipe in my home.

I really thought that the sauce tasted good when I stuck my finger in it, but on the chicken, it tasted sour in some spots in sweet in others, which was weird, because I mixed it up good. Also, I took out the chicken after 20 minutes to thicken the sauce, but I don't think the chicken was done all the way. Unfortunately, the recipe isn't very clear about that, nor about how long it would take to cook the sauce down, which was forever.

This was wonderful! I was looking for a recipe for wings and found this. I had a 5 lb bag of wings so I double the glaze recipe. When the wings were as tender as I wanted, I took them out, turned up the heat to a frenzied simmer, stirring it frequently and let it reduce. Put the wings in to coat, took it to a get together and wached them disppear! At first my daughters thought it smelled too much like vinegar but when it finished cooking, they raved about them! Husband wants it for dinner tonight using thighs with a side of rice and Asian veggies.

I made this last night for supper. Really good! I used thighs and added a chunk of ginger w/ the garlic & pepper. With rice & some steamed veg, it made a great meal.

I tried this recipe in the crockpot with chicken breasts & double sauce. I served it with steamed broccoli, steamed carrots and rice. It was fantastic and super easy to make! I have a large family gathering up in a few weeks, and this is what I'll be serving. Easy and cheap way to feed a crowd. Thanks for the great recipe!

I have cooked this a number of times now. Still it never ceases to receive praises from people who try it. Now there's one more reason for me to invite people over and try this very delicious dish. The first time I cooked this, I was having it ready for next day's lunch. But when my husband passed by, he just had to try it. Results? No lunch prepared for the next day. Finished everything. :-)

Very good. Used boneless skinless chicken breast and turned out very well.
