I searched the recipe so I could make this again and could not believe the poor reviews that I read. So I decided to write my own. This meal is excellent, safe, and simple to prepare. My 2 and 5 year old love it. I recommend using fresh ginger and pineapple, as well as dark corn syrup. And make a pot of rice. And I agree with a previous reviewer, a pot of rice compliments the chicken really well.


We really enjoyed this one! I used thighs instead of legs and put in green peppers and big chunks of red onion. The sauce was a bit watery but will try to put in some cornstarch next time. Thighs were really tender and will use them again next time- will definately make it again. Even my picky eaters ate up every bite! Very yummy!!!


My husband and I have never baked chicken before and this recipe was easy to follow. We made some changs based off of the reviews. We used dark corn syrup and added pepper, onions, brown sugar and extra ground ginger. We put crushed pineapples in the sauce and pineapple slices on top the chicken. We added the brown sugar to the mixture and also sprinkled it on top of the pineapple slices. It was so good! The chicken was very moist and the flavor went throughout the entire chicken. We used drumsticks and thighs and had to bake it for an extra 15 minutes. Our sauce didn't thicken either, but it was good mixed with the peppers and onions and poured over rice. This is definitely a new favorite for us!
