    The first time I made this I pretty much followed the recipe directions and ingredients. The second time, I got a little more creative and we ended up liking it even more. In addition to the ingredients written, I added 3 Tbls. of vinegar and 1 Tbls. of dijon mustard, which I blended in my food processor. After marinating the chicken, I broiled each chicken piece ten minutes on each side. I then placed the meat in the oven and continued to baste with the sauce. The broiling gave the chicken a nice crispy top and the vinegar and mustard additions added a nice flavor. Great recipe Holly!  -  15 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is sooooo yummy! I tripled (at least) the sauce for marinade, and used ziplock bags to marinate overnight. I have baked and also grilled it on the gas grill in disposable baking pans - Each way was super good! I've passed this recipe on to others and they love it too!  -  25 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    the BEST recipe for honey soysauce chicken ever. It was so simple..marinated thighs/drumsticks/wings for 3 hours and made extra marinade for basting half way thru. Definitely use foil to line the pan though. Also added a sprinkle of sesame seeds on top..we couldn't get enough of this.  -  03 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
