    It was yummy however the directions could use a bit more clarity. It was my first time using a skillet so I would love to know how much/what kind of oil to add to it. I also used chicken breast because that’s what I had in the fridge and it was still yummy!

    Amazinggggg! Made it with chicken breast, cooked 3 mins on each side on skillet and 30mins in the oven, perfectly juicy and the sauce tastes incredible! Even better with some tender stem broccoli and rice. 🤤

    Worst dish I've cooked on Yummly yet. Ruined by bad directions. Can only guess that the author is cooking over nothing more than a couple of tea candles. "Medium high heat" as directed gives you chicken that would be better served in a ceremonial urn, and sauce that essentially turned into stiff toffee. Wasted an hour of my life, and we're still hungry.
    The dish turned out very delicious, juicy and the meat very moist...full of flavours. I burned the chicken a bit and it gave it a slight smoked taste, which me and my girlfriend enjoyed. She said i should make the dish again.

    Delicious! I have a very picky family so when 4 out of the 5 of us like it, it’s a win. The 5th member thought “it was okay”.

    I was scared when I started Pan searing the thighs because I was using a new cast iron pan and my thighs got much darker than I wanted, but I was SO happy when I took that first bite. They were juicy and tender and the skin was crispy and flavorful. I may use a lower heat next time, but this dish will be added to my regular rotation and made for friends and family for years to come. (Pair it with oven roasted Parmesan carrots and mashed potatoes!)
    My whole family loved it! Will definitely be making this again

    This was so good! My husband said it’s definitely a keeper. It was easy to make (once I learned the hard way to sear it over medium heat and not high heat - we now know our smoke alarms work). Luckily I had enough chicken to try it again and got it right the second time.

    Yummy, I recommend you choose the garlic and chilli soy sauce. However, continuously taste it in order not to turn it into so salty because of the mixture of sauces. Definitely will make this again for the weekend!

    Not a fan of the rice vengar at all. Perhaps I added too much lemon and not enough soy sauce. There just wasn’t a balance. Oh well...

    It was ok but the sauce was more like a toffee than a sauce
