    Very delicious. The perfect sweetness but I would have cut back honey next time because of low carb diet.

    Delish - add extra garlic for even more flavor.

    Fabulous! Make sure you use a good quality Sesame oil... it really makes a difference in the flavors. This is a stable in our home.

    I've made this many times now and every time it turns out prefectly. I start marinating the chicken in the morning and cook it for supper. Absolutely delicious!

    honestly found it really didn't have much flavor and i followed recipe exactly. marinated almost 23 hours chicken was juicy though. probably won't make again

    It was good but chicken wasn’t quite done so threw into microwave for a few minutes. Delicious though.

    It was very good I was only able to marinate 2/12 hrs. When I make it again I will definitely do it overnight I didn’t think the cooking time would be enough but it was perfect I will definitely make again

    The recipe was easy to follow, but not exactly to my taste.

    Delicious- made it just as the recipe calls. I did marinate it overnight. I left it in the oven for 5 more minutes and the skin was nice and crispy without having to put it in the broiler. I did baste it every 10 minutes to prevent it from drying. The chicken was nice and juicy.
    Great!! I didn’t have Worcestershire sauce but still tasted great

    This was very tasty. I halved the recipe since there is only two of us. I did marinate the thighs all day but I think where I went wrong was put them in too small of a dish. I basted every ten minutes but the skin wasn’t too crispy. I should have broiled them for a few minutes. We did like the flavor a lot so I will make again.

    One taste and my 9-yo asked if he could have this everyday <3 I didn’t marinate overnight, about 6hrs (while out doing errands), but the flavours were incredible.

    I'd give more stars if I could. This was a KILLER recipe. Next time I will marinade over night. YUM!
