  2. I was really disappointed with this the flavors sounded good but the end product just tasted like greasy bland chicken.
  3. I found this a very easy recipe to make. I made some changes to it and it turned out very flavourful! I used fresh ginger and also added some fresh garlic. The ingredient that I added that made it so yummy was some Thai sweet chili sauce. I added just under 1/4 cup. I cooked - Read more ...

I added 2 cloves of fresh garlic doubled the soya and ginger and corn syrup but it did not do much. I - Read more ...
  9. I didn't care for this either. I used ground ginger and it didn't make any difference. My leg quarters were still a bit frozen so it took longer to cook but it had too much liquid and didn't carmelize at all.
