    Alskann's Note:

    This is a family favorite and so simple. I first got the recipe from a friend who was a chef in a Japanese restaurant. When I married my husband he was using the same recipe he got from his Japanese ex-mother-in-law. It is so versatile we have used it for chicken breasts, wings, thighs, salmon, halibut, beef-kabobs - even veggies!

      Very good, we added minced fresh ginger and one tsp of garlic, as well as used 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 3/4 cup of soy sauce (but added an extra 1/4 cup of water) based on the reviews here to reduce the saltiness and sweetness. It was perfect. The kids liked it, as did I! A great way to make chicken other than in the oven. Thanks!

      Good! I boiled everything but the drumsticks and ginger (didn't use the ginger) and then poured the sauce over the (frozen)drumsticks into my slow cooker and let them cook all day. I hac doubled the sauce but I probably didn't need to - it seemed to be plenty and then some.
