    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!

    Delicious, the only ingredient I was short on was honey, followed the rest of instructions. Absolutely delicious, next time though I will make twice as much for sauce for the rice. Thank you.

    I did not marinate as I didn't have time and it was still delicious. I left out the sesame oil and worsester sauce as I didn't have any and added cornflour to the sauce once the chicken was done. Ate the chicken with the sauce on top. delish!!

    Chicken was good. Next time I will marinate over night instead of two hours so the flavor can penetrate better.

    Tasty. Love how the skin came out crispy and the flavor was spot on throughout.
