Good base recipe for this kind of thing, but too sweet and not enough savory. I made it pretty much exactly on recipe, except I added some fresh lime juice at the end for brightness. But the sauce is slightly bland actually. Need more soy sauce, less water, a few red pepper flakes, and a little molasses instead of some of the honey wouldn't hurt. They lack....umami, a savory meatiness. I'll try again but with some definite tweaks. I'll up the soy, reduce the brown sugar, add the red pepper flakes, and perhaps some cooking juices from the chicken. But it was...okay.
