good for how easy it was to make I added ground ginger for some extra taste. Next time I think I will add peanut butter and chili garlic sauce Read More

This was a simple recipe that looked gorgeous as it caramelized and tasted almost as good. I didn't have any sesame seeds so I added a splash of sesame oil and then after the chicken cooked I drizzled a few extra drops over the chicken. Also I used chicken pieces on the bone (a whole chicken cut into 8 pieces) and I think because it took almost twice as long to cook the glaze benefitted from the extra time and turned a deep color. Beautiful. My teenage son and my husband scarfed down the whole chicken (a single wing leftover) and used the extra glaze/pan drippings (which I defatted with my defatter cup) over the rice and broccoli and chicken on the plate. I give this 5 stars but next time I might add a crushed garlic clove or two. Thanks! Read More

Ridiculously easy to make and very very good. I only had a little bit of honey so I did 1/4 cup honey but added 1/4 cup of maple syrup. I also salted and peppered the chicken before I added the sauce. The result was spectacular. Everyone loved it and I will be making this again. A recipe does not have to be complicated to be good. The only thing I will do next time is flip over the chicken during cooking so it can soak in the flavor on both sides. When done don't dump the juice use it as a sauce for rice or some other side. Yummy. Read More

REALLY good recipe! I just eyeballed the quantities. Also added some grated fresh ginger and garlic. I just poured the mixture over chicken thighs. I spooned the mixture over the chicken every 10 mins while it cooked and it turned out juicy and flavorful! VERY quick and tasty. Will for sure make again. Read More

My family really liked this recipe but I did make some changes. I used half soy sauce and half teryaiki sauce to make up the 1/4c. in the recipe. I also added fresh diced ginger and used orange juice instead of lemon juice. I used this mixture to dip the chicken into and then sprinkled the sesame seeds on top. I then added 1 tbsp. of cornstarch to the mixture and heated it until thick. This was the sauce I spooned over the chicken before putting it into the oven. It was really good served with broccoli and rice. Read More

This just plain wasn't very good. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't good either. I did it stove top since I didn't want my boneless skinless breasts to get dried out in the oven and thought the sauce might have a chance to thicken and coat better in a skillet. It just just sweet. Didn't have any flavor other than sweet. I subbed rice wine vinegar for the lemon juice thinking it would be more authentic. Just.. blah. Read More

Yummy and easy. I am a lazy cook so I just poured the sauce over frozen chicken breasts and cooked for an hour. Read More

I liked the way the sauce tasted but it didn't stick to the chicken at all. It made a huge mess in the pan too. Read More

For a quick meal it was pretty good with a couple of tweaks. I decided to fix it on the stove top in a non stick pan. I started with the ingredients as written heated sauce tasted and then added about 2 Tbs peanutbutter 1 Tbs sweet chili sauce would have added fresh Ginger but didn't have any then added a dash of 5 spice. Once I got the sauce flavorful I added the cut chicken thighs and sautéd until chicken was done and sauce was nice and sticky. Served with grilled asparagus over rice. Read More
