      This was a very good recipe. Excellent because it's so simple and easy. I used low sodium soy sauce (all I had) and cooking white wine. Also used skin on, bone in chicken. The chicken kept the flavor of the sauce wonderfully so it was very tasty and moist.

      So simple and easy. I put a bit less oil and more wine. Very juicy and good with rice.
