Wonderful flavor! I ended up baking these in the oven as my grill was out of propane. They were very tasty! Will definately make again. I prepared this as a OAMC recipe and froze the chicken strips in the sauce. Then thawed in the fridge and baked instead of grilling. It took about 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees. Thanks for sharing!
We liked these quite a bit. Very flavorful, slightly tangy. I used freshly minced ginger, and omitted the green onions (I'm the only one that will eat them). I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and baked the skewers instead of grilling them. I will make these again and grill them this time to see which way makes the dish taste the best.
