Restaurant-style Amazing!!!, Member VMCC789

After we made the sauce to marinade, I thought it smelled only like soy sauce and the other flavors would get lost. This was one of the best dishes I've ever had! My first thought was that it tasted like something you'd get at a restaurant. The flavors blended perfectly and the chicken was so moist and fell apart when we pulled it out. Everyone raved about it! There's no doubt we will make this again and again!
