"My Mom used to make this for us. It was a quick easy meal (inexpensive) and a crowd pleaser everytime. And now I make it for my 6 boys and my husband and they all love it. It is so easy I feel like I am lying to them!! The other night my son asked his friend to stay for dinner. " My Mom is an amazing cook- you have to stay!!". Thanks for reminding me of this oldie but goodie. "

The sauce was good. I added a little bit of chicken stock and white wine to the sauce for a little extra flavor. photo by RedBoy1122 RedBoy1122

These were delicious! The sauce is yummy and the chicken practically fell off the bone. I used a combination of legs and thighs with the skin on which got nice and golden. We will have again!!

I little too sweet for me. I would use less brown sugar and more soy sauce next time.

Don't forget to add the soy sauce too! Very good! A little oriental but not overwhelming. Will use sauce again and would be good on vegetables and rice.

Taste great, just make sure to eat it as soon as it comes off the heat cuz that corn starch'll get ya! Lol, great recipe non the less.

A big big big hit. We make this dish as least once a month and always have frozen chicken legs in the freezer because if we can figure out a dinner for a night this is a great option.
