    Fantastic!! I doubled the ingredients (excluding oil). Used half as a marinade and grilled the thighs instead… When it was done, took it off the grill and submerged it in other half of sauce… then I put it back on the grill at high heat for a quick moment and put it back in the sauce for serving….. Sooooo good!!! I also added garlic powder to the sauce which helped blacken the thighs and gave it great flavor…. 😍

    I loved it and so did the fam!! It was so flavorful and so easy! I definitely should’ve made extras.

    Easy & Delicious with flexibility to customize! Used boneless skinless thighs. Seasoned thighs with Trader Joe’s garlic seasoned salt, dredged in a little olive oil, and cooked for 5 min in each side in the skillet. Added a dash of Chinese Five Spice right before removing from skillet. For the marinade, I added 1/2 teaspoon of prepared ginger, & 1/4 teaspoon powder garlic.

    It was a smash hit with the crew at work. Flavorful and tender chicken. I made the fried rice linked in the recipe which was also delicious but unnecessary since there was plenty of sauce in the pan to mix with the rice.

    The recipe needed garlic. I also added fresh ginger and ahi-marin. Much better.

    I fixed extra sauce and added 5 spice, but even so, the chicken was flavorless. I will not be making this again.

    Great recipe I added a little chicken broth for a little more sauce and served with rice and topped with green onions
    Chicken turned out to be very flavorful, but might try as a marinade next time

    It was good. Tried the sauce and seasoned the chicken with a little bit of Chinese five spice.

    Very easy and tasty. The sauce was wonderful over the rice I cooked for a side dish. Glad I have a couple of thighs left for lunch!

    Made this tonight for dinner. Everyone loved it. I doubled the sauce, like someone suggested. Next time I think I will add hot pepper flakes, to add a little kick.

    Great recipe, I doubled the sauce and put it one leftover spaghetti that I crisped in a pan with sesame oil and sesame seeds. Only had boneless thighs but tasted great!

    Have to say this recipe lacked much flavor. Meat was tender but Asian flavors fare better as a marinade. I will not make this again.

    Very good. Next time I think I'll make a little more sauce. Directions are easy to follow.
