MY REVIEW

I used fresh pears and added green beans

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2010

forgot to rate this! It's great, just a tad too sweet and that's easy to fix. Like I said prior, maybe just half as much brown sugar! Also, use the soy sauce substitute to keep sodium to a minimum

MY REVIEW

This was a little too sweet for our taste so next time I'm going to cut down on the brown sugar. We also used the soy sauce substitute recipe that is talked about by another rater. It worked well

MY REVIEW

This was a good recipe. I didn't have parsley so I don't know if the flavor would have been any different with it. It tasted like a nice honey terriyaki chicken. I thought it was going to be a little sweeter (not terriyaki tasting) because of the name of it. I think I'll try it again, but without the garlic powder and see if it's the taste I was hoping for. The pears and walnuts were great in it! I used a few pecans because I didn't have enough walnuts and they were great too.
