This was originally a Kikkoman Soy Sauce recipe advertised in a magazine. We really like it. It's great with lemon rice and roasted vegetables.

WOW! This bird will fly!! The chicken was moist and juicy, and the seasoning was uniquely exceptional. The chicken was absolutely lovely, a nice brown skin. I absolutely recommend this chicken dish to all. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
