fresh lemon juice
boneless, skinless chicken thighs
good for how easy it was to make, I added ground ginger for some extra taste. Next time I think I will add peanut butter and chili garlic sauce
This just plain wasn't very good. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good, either. I did it stove top, since I didn't want my boneless, skinless breasts to get dried out in the oven, and thought the sauce might have a chance to thicken and coat better in a skillet. It just just sweet. Didn't have any flavor other than sweet. I subbed rice wine vinegar for the lemon juice thinking it would be more authentic. Just.. blah.
This was a simple recipe that looked gorgeous as it caramelized and tasted almost as good. I didn't have any sesame seeds so I added a splash of sesame oil and then after the chicken cooked I drizzled a few extra drops over the chicken. Also, I used chicken pieces on the bone (a whole chicken cut into 8 pieces) and I think because it took almost twice as long to cook the glaze benefitted from the extra time and turned a deep color. Beautiful. My teenage son and my husband scarfed down the whole chicken (a single wing leftover) and used the extra glaze/pan drippings (which I defatted with my defatter cup) over the rice and broccoli and chicken on the plate. I give this 5 stars, but next time I might add a crushed garlic clove or two. Thanks!
Ridiculously easy to make and very very good. I only had a little bit of honey so I did 1/4 cup honey but added 1/4 cup of maple syrup. I also salted and peppered the chicken before I added the sauce. The result was spectacular. Everyone loved it and I will be making this again. A recipe does not have to be complicated to be good. The only thing I will do next time is flip over the chicken during cooking so it can soak in the flavor on both sides. When done don't dump the juice, use it as a sauce for rice or some other side. Yummy.
My family really liked this recipe but I did make some changes. I used half soy sauce and half teryaiki sauce to make up the 1/4c. in the recipe. I also added fresh diced ginger and used orange juice instead of lemon juice. I used this mixture to dip the chicken into and then sprinkled the sesame seeds on top. I then added 1 tbsp. of cornstarch to the mixture and heated it until thick. This was the sauce I spooned over the chicken before putting it into the oven. It was really good served with broccoli and rice.
Yummy and easy. I am a lazy cook, so I just poured the sauce over frozen chicken breasts and cooked for an hour.
REALLY good recipe! I just eyeballed the quantities. Also added some grated fresh ginger and garlic. I just poured the mixture over chicken thighs. I spooned the mixture over the chicken every 10 mins while it cooked, and it turned out juicy and flavorful! VERY quick and tasty. Will for sure make again.
I liked the way the sauce tasted, but it didn't stick to the chicken at all. It made a huge mess in the pan, too.
