delicious - my marinade was also on the runny side so I poured it into a small saucepan and thickened with cornflour paste - came out PERFECT... poured back on chicken and heated through again in the oven.

I have just finished making and eating these, they are lovely! Very runny so keep some kitchen roll or a tea towel handy because they are messy! A great meal for families, married couples and couples that have been together for a while, wouldn't recommend these for a first date because you look like a little kid whilst you eat them with sauce all over your face!

Marinated Chicken Wings overnight... were delish!!! added extra honey though as i though the dijon mustard made them taste like wasabi.

Mine weren't anywhere near the colour in the photo (possibly because I used light soy sauce) but they tasted great and went down a treat.

I doubled the ingredients and altered the amount a bit: 5 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp Dijon mustard, 1 tbsp tomato purée, 1 tsp olive oil. Added 1/2 tsp grilled meat spices for a bit of edge. Delicious, will make again!

Delicious recipe. Used thighs and drumsticks, less oil than recommended and added fresh chilli and ginger. Will definitely do it again.

Very yummy indeed! Good consistency marinade. Am about to make up a batch and bung in freezer for a 'grab-a-meal' moment!

Have made this a number of times and every time the family love it. It is also very good cold for packed lunch. Will try this with pork spare ribs soon.

cooked this for a family BBQ and it went down a treat. I cooked them in the oven and finished them off on the BBQ

I used free range chicken and marinated for a good 6 hours but I thought it wasn't very strong in the flavours. My bf and I eat a lot of chilli, garlic, ginger Thai/Chinese food so maybe this wasn't 'tasty' enough for us. My parents loved it though and they eat milder foods :) will try a different recipe.
