"I took previous advice and doubled sauce. I was also impatient in waiting for the sauce to thicken so I added a sprinkle of cornstarch. Tasty...will make again."

"Great Recipe it was easy to make. I used the chicken thighs and everyone loved it. It was a very tasty dish. I actually doubled the glaze ingredients to make more. Everyone enjoyed the meal. I served it with rice noodles and broccoli. It was wonderful and the left overs were even better. This is a recipe I'll make often."

"Try this, you won't be disappointed!! I didn't have chicken thighs, so I used chicken breasts and I cut them up a bit. I thought the glaze needed more liquid, so I added some chicken broth. I also took out the chicken when it was done. So then, the glaze was too thin. So I just kept on boiling it, stirring almost constantly, basically making a reduction (I think that's the right term.) I would like more glaze though-I'd maybe double the glaze ingredients. Delicious!!! I served it with basmati rice and broccoli."
