Wow! This recipe sounded good but I didn't realize what an impact it would make at dinner time. I've known my husband for close to 15 years and have been cooking chicken for him about as long....

We really really liked this alot.. I made a couple changes..I added just a pinch of ground ginger.. after I mixed all the ingredients I threw them all in a Ziploc bag along with some fresh slice...

This is very tasty and flavorful. The sauce is so goopd I would double if you want to serve over rice because there isn't much left after cooking. Pork cops would be a great meat to try cooking...

wonderful. I used ginger root and garlic clove crushed and marinaded it for several hours. at the last I splashed about 2 tblsp sherry into the gravy. thigh meat works best.

This recipe was fantastic!! The only change I made was to add an additional tbls. soy sauce. I will be making this one again!
