I love garlic and ginger. It would probably have been good with just that. Even with low sodium soy it came out too salty for me. Next time I'll use either water or stock with a small amount of soy.

I for one love was thrilled to see this recipe! These are the best...thank you! (Any chance you know how to make the chiken that you wrap in aluminum foil squares...also quite tasty but I haven't been able to find a recipe. I can only find paper chicken which doesn't seem exactly the same). Again, thank you for this one, we'll be having it again tonight!
