I made this for the first time yesterday. As always, when making a recipe for the first time, I followed it exactly-well almost exactly. I truly intended to, but forgot the vinegar & didn't realize it until I was putting the chicken in the oven. I also accidentally used my 1/3 measuring cup for the sugar instead of my 1/2 cup & put the sauce on the chicken all at once. I inadvertently marinated it for 30 minutes as I was distracted by being on the phone and/or got confused by reading so many different reviews.
I used regular soy sauce & we did not find it salty at all. I didn't salt the breasts. It was a little sweet but I am sure if I had added the vinegar it would have cut that down.
In any case the sauce was really good, I love the stickiness of the glaze and will definitely make it again but double the sauce. I am sure that if I pay attention & follow it exactly it will be perfect next time. I did sprinkle with sesame seeds as a garnish but don't consider that changing a recipe. Definitely line the pan with foil!
My oven is convection & bakes a bit hotter than normal. When I set the temperature at 425 it automatically dropped to 400 so that is what I cooked them at. I used two skinless, boneless breasts that were quite large so I cut them in half lengthwise. I turned them over & basted at 10 minutes & then again at 20 minutes. Chicken was done at 30 minutes & very juicy. Enough for two people & still had one piece of breast left over.
Thanks for sharing Marian!
