    It’s a really good recipe. I personally don’t like honey, but it had a mild impact on the dish itself and whatever flavor of it was left complemented the soy sauce perfectly. This is an recipe easy to make and everyone in my family enjoyed it.

    it was definitely on the saltier side. i added 3 stalks of green onions, and 2 tbsp of sriracha, 2 tbsp of sweet soy sauce. definitely going into my success collections.

    Delicious! I’m someone who always seasons my chicken with salt before adding a marinade. This marinade is sooo good that you don’t need to, but if you choose to, just a little bit of salt is needed. I can’t wait to make this again and again!

    Perfect! i served it with medium egg noodles and fried some peppers underneath it. as a side salad we also had the 6 ingredient guinoa salad which is also on yummly. LPT: for a family of 4 i doubled the sauce but would add another half as after coating the chicken every 10 mins and it being reduced on the hob the whole time it quickly disappears but on the upside that sauce once it has thickened is to die for.

    Peppery. Maybe less pepper next time. Otherwise - it was easy and tasty. Did not use ginger.

    This was delicious. I used chicken thighs because I like them more than breasts, and it turned out great.

    Very nice! Was a little bit hesitant to add so much ginger and garlic, but it turned out very well.

    Excellent. I used thighs instead of breasts because I couldn’t find bone in breasts. Worked great,

    I definitely recommend letting it marinate over night because the difference is obvious if you just let it marinate a couple hours. Also keeping the glaze simmering and applying it is key as I tried doing it only twice and didn’t end up with the same results (it was dry and not as flavorful). Very tasty tho. I don’t add salt because this recipe already has so much in it from the soy sauce.
