Questions & Replies

  1. Why do they put the Nutrition box in the middle of the print version? I hate wasting ink and paper. Same with the picture. Why not just the recipe?
  2. Do not lay flat? Please explain how?
  3. I would like to use chicken breasts as this is what we prefer. Has anyone made this with anything other than thighs?
  4. Can you make it in a crock pot
  5. For this recipe, are the thighs kept frozen or unfrozen??


  1. I am the LAST person that would normally submit a tweak on a recipe, but it was so good, I thought I would do just that. First, this is a great recipe for dads. It's easy! Prep time is minimal, most of the ingredients should be in almost any kitchen, and results are crowd pleasing. My five kids polished their plates, and asked for seconds (it's rare that we go 5 for 5).
  2. I added some minced ginger to the sauce. I like to double the recipe of the sauce and use to stir fry some veggies and serve on top of rice, pouring the pan juice and any extra sauce on top! I make it almost every week now - so good!
  3. This was really good! I used 4 small bone in thighs, and the full recipe of sauce. We love sauce over our rice, so this was the perfect amount. I loved the flavor, both sweet and savory at the same time. Next time I might add some grated ginger, because it goes so well with the flavors that are already here; but we were very happy with this as written. Definitely a make again. Thanks for sharing!
  4. This is my third time making this and it just gets better. My only tweaks are a little minced ginger and a little crushed red pepper with a little extra honey. I usually double the recipe for stir-fried veggies over rice. This sauce is fantastic. I am thinking of a number of other ways to use it as I type. Thanks for sharing I do tend to baste several times, with at least one during the initial 30 minute bake.
  5. What a great recipe. So easy to make and the kids loved it. So did my very picky wife. Thanks again


  1. My tweak was this. I looked over the ingredients and thought we were good, but when I got started, I found we were out of FLOUR of all things. I used corn meal, and it gave the dish a sort of southern flair.
  2. I added fresh ginger. Served it over rice and broccoli. Made double the sauce to coat broccoli. Delicious!
  3. I’m usually not a fan of “sweet meat” but these rocked! I tweaked by using bone-in skin on thighs, adding ginger, doubling the sauce, and finishing them off on a gas grill to crisp up the skin. We love these!!
  4. I followed the directions, except I quadrupled the honey and soy sauce to ensure we had plenty of sauce, and also added a squirt of sriracha and couple dashes of crushed red pepper flakes for a little heat with the sweet. Served over quinoa with stir fry veggies in a soy sauce glaze! Delicious!
