“A sweet marinade that is just so easy to make! I use this recipe whenever we bring dinner to another couple's house. I marinate it at home, then just cook it there. It's great with white rice.”

Delicious - perfect balance of flavors. I scaled the recipe back and cut the chicken breasts into medallions; therefore I marinated the medallions for 45 minutes and baked it for 30 minutes at 325º. I served the chicken medallions over mixed greens so I used the marinade that had cooked and thickened during the baking process as the salad dressing. I didn’t have fresh ginger so I substituted dried ginger and used cider vinegar. Perfect - can’t get any easier or tastier than this. Added note: I made this again cutting them into medallions only this time I grilled them on the grill with excellent results. It's a fast, easy and tasty dish.

I made the marinade the day before and let the chicken sit in it over night. Then I just popped it in the oven to cook. Super easy, absolutely delicious! And, mine wasn't black (as happened to a previous reviewer) it cooked up beautifully! In fact, I'm having the leftovers for lunch right now!!

This was very good. I added a little sesame oil because I like the flavor in chinese style dishes and a few drops of chinese hot oil to give it a little heat. Yummy!
