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


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!


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.
