    I rarely have negative things to say about Yummly recipes, but this one has a lot to be desired. I marinated the chicken for 5 hours and it had absolutely no Asian taste. I was really disappointed and will never make this again. It sounded so good.☹️

    This was delicious! I always have trouble cooking chicken legs, so I usually avoid making them. I followed this recipe as written, and they cooked perfectly! A guest even complimented me on how well they turned out. This is definitely a repeat meal!

    Delicious! Next time I will save the marinade, throw it on the stove with a little cornstarch to make a thicker glaze!

    My family enjoyed this chicken dish very much. The only modification to the recipe I made was to bake longer. The chicken legs did not dry up, due to the sauce....but baked long enough to cook out the gristle and stuff you don't want to bite into.

    used skinless thighs and half the sugar baked 350 for 45 minutes awesome!

    Rather tasty. We enjoyed the marinade flavor. 4 star cause it did not wow us.
    12 hours wasnt long enough for the marinade
