    This dish had great flavor from the marinade but took much longer to cook. If the chicken pieces are large, add extra cooking time.

    I made this last night and thought the taste was very good; nice and spicy.I also found it needed to cook longer than the recipe said, so I dropped the temp to 350 and cooked it for another 10 minutes.Will definetly make it again.served it with brown rice and spinach sauted with garlic and lemon zest. Combo was great.

    Really yummy! I like great recipes with few ingredients. I served it with plain rice (Make extra sauce for rice if you want.) and asparagus with a brown butter sauce with soy & balsamic. They were even great the next day heated up. This is a keeper, and I will definitely make it again. The husband loved it.

    Very solid recipe. I used 2 lbs of chicken breast and substituted chili sesame oil because that is all I had available. (1 TBLS) Served with sticky rice and a salad dressed with Trader Joe's Pear Vinaigrette. Super simple and very tasty.

    This recipe is delish! My husband raved about the flavors and it was very easy to prepare as well. I served this with steamed snap peas & coconut mango rice from CL. I will make this again for sure maybe next time with pork tenderloin.

    Let it be known I do not have a picky eater amongst the 4 men in my house. This got top ratings from all of them. Our 13 year old even made sure to print it out so that I could put it in our "Family Faves" cookbook. Easy to prepare and delicious. Served with rice and asparagus.

    We enjoyed this recipe a lot -- excellent flavor and very easy. Didn't have chili paste so I used chili garlic sauce and that worked quite well. Only marinated the thighs about 40 min. which worked fine. Served with brown rice and edamame -- great combo. I would serve this for everyday meal or for guests.

    I've made this twice now since it was SO delicious and so easy - my DH can't stop raving about it. Both times I used boneless thighs and it cooked in the time listed. The second time I didn't have many thighs so I supplemented with some cutlets (breasts). The flavor was still good, but it was a little dry. Thighs are definitely the way to go!

    My family loves Asian flavors, and we thought this was a real winner - since there are just 3 of us I had the butcher pick out three big boneless thighs and got an extra, and that was plenty. I still made the full amount of marinade, and held back about 1/4 cup to warm and serve at the table; marinated for about 3 hours. Also used Vietnamese chile garlic sauce (never have found chile paste with garlic, but this seems a close sub), so cut down the garlic a bit (3 crushed fresh cloves plus a tablespoon of minced jarred garlic). Wonderful flavors, served with CL's Island Rice and a quick veggie stir-fry of baby bok choy, broccoli, mushrooms and red onion (tossed with a bit of Hoisin Sauce at the end). Delicious meal, and one I'll make again.

    Yum yum, this one was made two nights in a row! Chicken thighs are the new thing for us since they don't dry out like chicken breasts. We also served with coconut jasmine rice and snap peas.

    Very good, easy recipe. I used boneless thighs, as it is what I had. Will make again.

    Easy and delicious! Served with jasmine rice and sugar snap peas. My husband loved it.

    Great recipe that even my husband who doesn't rave about chicken liked. I also cooked them a little longer than called for. The only problem I had was that the marinade did not get "syrupy" even cooking it a lot longer. I ended up adding a little corn starch to it to make it easier to baste with.

    I have made this recipes multiple times this summer and I love it every time. I do my chicken on the grill and glaze the chicken at the end of the cooking process. I love the char-grilled flavor and the glaze is just outstanding.

    Easy to prepare ahead of time - delicious blend of flavors. I think it was the best chicken I've ever eaten... and I've eaten plenty. If you like spice with a little sweet, this is a must try!

    Yummy, but not a ton of flavor

  • LindaThiel Posted: 02/18/13

    Will make it again and again and again. I cooked it on the grill and it was so tender from marinating. Loved the glaze.

    Sweet n' spicy, yum! Minus the marinating time, this is quick to prepare. Served with jazmine rice and CL Steamed Sugar Snap Peas, (as the picture suggested).

  • Akaplanis Posted: 08/03/12

    Outstanding. The flavor was great - sweet with a bit of a kick. Very flavorful. My 5 and 8 year olds even loved it. I would serve this to company without hesitation. I too opted for grilling this recipe. As a previous reviewer said the chargrilled flavor with the glaze was outstanding.

    We love this recipe, but I marinate 5 to 8 hours and find it to be 100 percent better! It needs more time to soak up the flavors.

    Absolutely delicious! My husband loved the marinade!

  • itravel Posted: 03/01/14

    Marinated thighs overnight. I started them on top of stove in cast iron grill pan then popped them into 425 oven first with a tent of foil then removed it halfway through. They turned out good but I think they could be better. Cooked perfectly tender but just a little more spice would elevate the flavor. Next time:-)

  • Belanos Posted: 07/18/13

    These were good, but not outstanding. The recipe is easy, but does take awhile to prepare with the 1 hour marination time plus 30 minutes of baking. Chile lovers will want to increase the amount of sambal oelek; at 1.5 tablespoons, I really couldn't detect much if any heat in the finished dish. Leftovers do reheat well in the microwave. I served with sauteed red bell pepper, bok choy and green beans drizzled with a little dark sesame oil and quinoa.

  • tnwalsh Posted: 06/14/14

    We really liked this chicken. As other reviewers said, I marinated it all day. I think next time I'll kick up the chili paste a bit as we like a kick, but other than that it's a go.

  • MMowry Posted: 02/23/14

    I was really disappointed with this recipe after all of the rave reviews it had received. I didn't alter any of the ingredients and just found it to be bland. Won't make again.
