I'm so sorry, but we were not at all impressed with this dish. It was extremely bland--so much so that the plain steamed rice was almost more flavorful than the chicken--the steamed broccoli definitely eclipsed it. I would very, very strongly suggest adding garlic and ginger, possibly other seasonings, too. I think brown sugar instead of sugar would also help, as it has more flavor. I'm really sorry we didn't care for it--if we make it again, we will try some adjustments to see if we like it better. Thanks anyway, Oolala!
Absolutely delicious! DH and I don't care for thighs so I used breast. I also used your tip on pricking the chicken and marinating overnight. I wasn't sure what the liquid would be like, so I made stir fried veggie noodle as my side dish. Next time I will serve the liquid over white rice as it is very tasty and there's plenty of it. Thanks Oolala for posting
