I normally wouldn't bother writing a review, but the fact that this recipe has such high ratings overall, combined with the fact that I just simply could not salvage it, makes me feel the need to review it. I followed the recipe, with the exception of the lemon juice, because when I was picking up the ingredients I forgot to get that. When I came in that evening, the apartment smelled good, although the soy sauce scent was somewhat overwhelming. I thought, with as strongly as it smelled, surely the dish would be flavorful. However, it was completely bland and dry. I tried fixing it by adding in flavors similar to the original recipe, but everything I tried just made it taste worse. Not to mention mixing in the seasonings made the chicken fall into a million pieces, and because of the soy sauce, every part, meat and bone alike, were the exact same color and nearly impossible to tell apart without biting into chicken vertebrae. Not remotely appetizing. Needless to say, I won't be making it again, and I hope maybe I can save someone else the trouble.
