This Thai inspired flavor makes a very EASY, yet impressive dish. My family asks for it weekly since their first taste & I have picky eaters! I've served it with rice & broccoli (I've also chopped it & stirred it all together for a single dish). It's also a good dish for company.
All in all this was an okay recipe. I think it had a slightly odd flavor (can't figure out just what it was) but it was completely eaten at dinner so it wasn't bad. I don't think I'll make it again though.
The 24 hours of marinating time is way too long, which made the meat extremely salty. Otherwise it's a good recipe.
I haven't been cooking very long, but when I got married a month and a half ago, I knew it was time to start. I found this recipe and thought it sounded good. Oh my goodness! It's to die for! It was delicious and my husband LOVED it, too. I will definitely be keeping this recipe!
I marinated the chicken for about 24 hours prior to BBQing. The soy sauce overpowered the flavour of any other ingredient in the marinade and left the chicken quite salty, but tender.
If I do make this again, I would reduce the soy sauce substantially.
I subbed siracha for the chile peppers and left out the sesame seeds. this is my single favorite marinade of all time. very different - not your run of the mill. If you don't like it at least a little hot, stay away - probably not for the kiddies.
Excellent, my friends loved it. I added some slices of ginger for extra flavor
too much of a soy sauce taste, overpowered any other flavor.
