Our family thought this was ok but we weren't all that impressed. Too salty for sure. Read More

The flavor was a little strong for me. I think next time I won't marinade overnight. But I'd definitely make it again. Read More

Love the recipe. I've noticed that some people think that it's too salty or strong so I have a suggestion. I don't know if this is available everywhere but....I use Aloha Shoyu which is a Hawaiian version of regular soy sauce. It is has a much lighter taste than the regular soy sauce. Mochiko chicken is a popular dish in Hawaii and uses Aloha Shoyu instead of soy sauce. I use it all the time and never salty. Read More

This is exactly what I was looking for. Moist and tender flavorful and perfectly browned. I took the extra time to make sure the tendons and connecting tissues were removed. It was worth the time spent! Read More
