12 servings (serving size: about 1 1/2 ounces)

These bite-sized appetizers are steeped in a mixture of garlic, soy sauce, ginger, citrus, and honey. The marinade is then reduced and used to glaze the chicken.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 9 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and shake well. Add chicken; seal and toss to coat. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 3

Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Arrange chicken in a single layer on the rack of a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes, stirring once.

Step 4

While chicken is cooking, strain marinade through a sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Place marinade in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook 3 minutes; skim solids from surface. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Add cornstarch mixture to pan, stirring with a whisk; cook 1 minute. Remove from heat; pour glaze into a large bowl.

Step 5

Preheat broiler.

Step 6

Add chicken to glaze; toss well to coat. Place chicken mixture on a jelly roll pan; broil 5 minutes or until browned, stirring twice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.

Pretty good, but not great. I think the ginger was a little too strong.

We thought this was excellent! We diced up chicken breasts instead of thighs and served over rice.

Delicious dish, but I'm not such a huge fan of ginger. I'd probably use 1 tablespoon of ginger and up the garlic.

I love this sauce! The chicken was so good, I forgot it wasn't deep-fried :) I also used it on roasted winter vegetables without the soy sauce, sesame oil and ginger. My'I don't like vegetables' friend ate everything on her plate! Make sure you grate the garlic.

Flavors were just very odd and made quite a mess. Definitely line your pans with foil for an easier mess to clean. Served with white rice. Wasn't crazy about this one.
