    This was absolutely delicious. I marinated for an hour and they turned out perfectly. Thanks for a great recipe!

    We prepared these bits as listed and served with a salad for a nice light dinner. We found the flavour a bit too sweet and next time I would not add any sugar; it might also be good without the sauce for a more crusty chicken. Made for 1-2-3.

    I prepared these earlier in the day and left them to sit in the marinade until evening. I bought pita breads, chopped up some tomato and cucumber, sliced some onion, cooked up the chicken bites, stuffed the pita breads with a bit of everything, and the family enjoyed a feast! Thank you for a lovely recipe which the family very much enjoyed! Made in memory of Don, my thoughts are with you.

    This recipe is wonderful. I didn't add the sesame seeds because we don't care for them, but it still tasted good. My husband approved it and he is very picky. Two thumbs up!!

    LM - I used this as an appy for a celebration party and it was a huge hit! The added bits of toasted seasame seeds really added a nice depth to the overall taste so it was not just another teriyaki chicken dish. I'm honored to have made this in memory of your beloved hubby. Hugs friend! :)
