    Something else. I just put the soy and garlic in a plastic bag and thought it needed something more so I added 4 tablespoons oil, 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire, and 2 tablespoons of Sherry. I baked it in the oven because the weather was bad. I just poured the marinade over the chicken and turned the chicken every 15 minutes to 'baste'. The chicken was full of flavour.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Used different ingredients. Not to stray from this recipe, but it tastes really good if you add a tbl of brown sugar and minced ginger.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This was such a easy recipe. The chicken was extreamly moist and tender. The second time I made it, I added 4 tbsp of oil and about a tsp of chilli powder. YUMMM! Also if you feel like splurging a bit, top it with some cheese and sauteed mushrooms : )  -  08 Oct 2008
