    My husband said "this is some darn good chicken..." So I guess it was pretty good! It looks like it should be sweet glaze but it was delightfully savory. It's got a kick to it from the chili paste. Make sure you scrap up any glaze that browns at the bottom of the pan as it's super delicious. I served it with a cold Udon noodle salad and lightly steamed broccoli. Great dinner!

    Not bad, but not one to repeat either. I was expecting the sauce to be sweet and savory like CL's miso salmon recipe. It was just salty/savory. We had the chicken with brown rice and steamed broccoli.

    Trying out this recipe tonight already a few substitutions. I couldn't find miso (...forgot about subbing with anchovy paste) using miso soup mix sifting out all the extras to get just powder. (not sure the name threw out the label found at Giant) Second sub could not find chile paste so I subbed it for sweet chili sauce (found at Giant by sun luck). I started reading the reviews so far and allot of you are saying it's salty so I added a couple more teaspoons of the sweet chili sauce while reducing the marinade in hopes balance it out. tasting sauce ...sweet ....after taste..still a little salty. chicken is taking a little longer than 6 mins ..... ok double the time Dinner is served over raw spinach, bitter (spinach) battles salty, making the whole taste super savory and well Magnifique! "Good blend of sweet and savory" ~ Says the Husband Chicken was juicey glaze was even and tastey thoughts for next time: more Sweet Chili Sauce slightly less soy More kissing of the cook :) ~Q~

    The sauce had a perfect umami flavor, but was a little too salty. This was quick with the exception of marinating time. Recipe as written made plenty of sauce which is rare for CL recipies. Served with a cold udon noodle salad and miso soup.

    My husband and I loved this recipe! Excellent sauce that we spooned over brown rice as well as chicken. Served with rice, and stir-fried broccoli and carrots. I made recipe exactly except that I was out of honey and substituted agave. It turned out great. Will definitely make this one again!

    I made this for the first time last week and my husband and I LOVED this. It was the perfect combination of salty/spicy/tasty, and super easy to make! I served it with rice and salad....mmmmm Highly recommended:)

    My whole family loved this recipe, even my picky 20 mos old. We ended up not using all the marinade as the first half as you put it in the oven ended up being plenty. Also, I did not use a whole tbsp of oil to cook the chicken. So some calories and fat were saved, but not sure how many. We are weight watcher followers and this was 8 points for the nutrition info given, but we also did not use 6 oz pieces of chicken we used 3-4 oz each.

    I have made this recipe three times and it is awesome. Make extra and serve cold over a salad. Take the sauce, add mustard, garlic and rice vinegar for a quick salad dressing.

    Definitely a keeper! I'm a bit generous with spices so this turned out very tasty for us. Served with soba noodles and stir fried snow peas. I will definitely make it again!

    Very easy to make and very delicious! I added more chili sauce and it gave the dish the right level of kick for my family. I will be making this again!

    I didn't find the time specified was enough to cook the chicken thoroughly. By the time I got the chicken cooked, the sauce had started burning and losing its flavor. Maybe cutlets would be better for this recipe. It wasn't special enough to try and makeover.

    I followed the recipe exactly except I substituted green onions for cilantro. I also had to bake the chicken longer than 6 minutes, probably more like 15. I served this with rice and a vegetable stir-fry. I will definitely make it again.

    A family favorite, I make this about every other week. I do double the marinade/sauce part of the recipe though, I like a lot of sauce.

    From some of the other reviewer's remarks, I was expecting this to be on the salty side; while the sauce was, the chicken itself was fine. Easy and quick (once the marinating is complete) with tasty results. I let the chicken sit a couple of extra minutes in the oven (having turned it off) while clearing a place to put the pan and finding a dish to put it in, and let it sit on the counter for a good five minutes, and it was perfectly done. I substituted chives for the cilantro, and served with red rice and stir-fried red bell peppers, onions and broccoli.
