    Omitted the honey and it was still very good. Marinated for about 6 hours and flavor was infused. I reduced the salt to only 1tsp. I think next time will try to add garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne.

    Very tasty! Will reduce maple syrup a bit but it was really good.

    Very delicious. The perfect sweetness but I would have to cut back honey next time because of low carb diet. My oven requires to cover pan with thin layer of water, bake 375 F 30 mins, baste then broil LO 10 mins. Extra sauce in pan makes great gravy.

    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!

    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

    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
