This recipe was great! I don't know why the person halved their sauce and said that was even too much (maybe they used the sauce to dip in instead of cook in?) You do need all of the sauce. I on...

My best friend makes these and I can NEVER get enough of them! Awesome!!

This recipe was a big hit at a recent party. The combination of flavors along with the crunch of the water chestnuts was truly unique. Since there were no kids to try it, I can't attest to how ...

Our family always marinates the chestnuts in a mixture of soy sauce & garlic, wraps in bacon & broils, for another way to do these delicious little treats. Try them for a change.

I've never tried these with mayonaise. I have had delicious success with just rolling the chestnuts and bacon with brown sugar, then broiling them.

Made these a few times,once instead of making the sauce for them,I used a bottle of honey garlic sauce,just as delicious and it gives it a new flavour.

These were OK. Kind of putzy to make though. I thought the amount of the sauce ingredients sounded like quite a bit so I cut them in half and it was still too much.

I needed something quick, easy and delicious to take to a potluck, and this was it! Disappeared so fast, my husband only got one! Thanks Nanci!

Great!! I love it, and I used to dislike water chestnuts!
