we LOVED this. I usually don't like when people submit reviews & tell how they changed the recipe 50 ways, and now I am going to do the same thing. :O) But, I just marinated the chicken breasts for about an hour in the soy sauce mixture and then put the chicken on the grill, basting it with the soy sauce mixture. My husband said I can serve him this chicken for dinner every day and he won't complain.

425 for an hour? unless shoe leather sounds appetizing don't cook that long. marinate and then grill for 5mins. a side. Sauce is good but far from great. If you must bake 350 for 30 mins. then check.

OMG! This recipe was soooo good. I only used 4 chicken breasts. I used splenda as the sweetner. I also added a half of a teaspoon of hot pepper sesame oil. I made this with brown rice and steamed broccoli. My picky 3 year old ate all of his and my husband had seconds. Thanks for this recipe it's DELISH!!!!

Really good (and very easy) recipe. I used boneless frozen chicken breasts and cooked for an hour and the chicken was very moist (thanks to the other reviewers for alerting me that 1 hour was too long for regular chicken- the Tyson frozen chicken breasts say to cook from frozen and 1 hr was the perfect time). Leftovers were great because the chicken sat in the sauce and absorbed more flavor. This is a keeper for the "oops, I forgot to defrost chicken" nights.

The taste was good, I didn't give it 5 because it takes MUCH less time than what the recipe says- mine was perfect after just 35 minutes.

I tried this recipe with leg quarters and it was a very tasty meal with a salad. I liked it very much.

This was a really good and simple recipe. I agree with the others who said the cooking time was too long. I left it in the oven for about 35 minutes and it turned out great. I added a little bit of sesame oil and used splenda to sweeten. Served it with mushrooms and rice.

I only had enough time to marinate the chicken for 40 minutes. It was very good but probably worth a 4-star rating. I made enough for two meals. The leftovers made one of the best chicken sandwiches I have every eaten. I plan to make this dish again and next time will marinate the chicken overnight. Instead of the artificial sweetener, I sprinkled about 1/4 teaspoon of sugar on the chicken.
