June 3, 2004. Tastes great! Very easy to make! I started it at 250-300 degrees and then up to 350 so I didn't have to wait so long. The results were still delicious! My family killed it!


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Wash chicken.
  3. Dry thoroughly.
  4. Coat chicken with flour seasoned with garlic salt, paprika and ginger.
  5. Arrange chicken skin side up in a single layer in baking pan.
  6. Roast, uncovered, for 1 hour.
  7. Drain.
  8. Mix other ingredients in a pot over a low flame. Pour over baked chicken when sugar has suitably melted. Bake for another 2 hours at 250 degrees or until chicken is done and delicously glazed.
  9. Basting and turning at least once will ensure an evenly coated glaze.

Oh, where have you been my whole life? This chicken is sooo good. It reminds me of the type of chicken you would get at a Chinese restaurant. It has that sticky, sweet, slightly ginger flavor. Yum!! I didn't have time to let it cook for 3 hours, so I set the oven to 400 degrees and cooked uncovered for 25 minutes. Then I turned down the oven to 375, poured the sauce over the chicken, covered with aluminum foil and cooked for another 35-40 minutes. I basted several times with the sauce and it was perfect. Thank you so much for this delicious recipe!

Wow!! Wow!! This chicken is "stickin" in my cookbook! Yummy! Yummy! Now, I read through a lot of the recipes and saw that a lot of people raised the cooking temperature and I honestly don't think that's necessary. I got the feeling people were worried it wasn't cooking thoroughly and trust me it does. I suppose if you don't have the 3 hours time available kicking up the temperature would be fine.

I followed the recipe to a tee with one small exception...I added a sprinkle of crushed red pepper and it gave it an amazing zing! It was almost like General Tso's Chicken that you get at a Chinese Restaurant. This will be a new staple in our household. Love it!! Love it!!

We enjoyed this! I wasn't too sure if it would be too sweet or like chicken teriyaki, but it was neither. It had a very nice mild taste - not too sweet at all. The flavors are very good. I used boneless/skinless chicken breasts and prepared for the 3 hrs as suggested. For me, the sauce really reduced itself and I could've actually used more. Thank you for sharing.
