I made this dish tonight, and it was very good. This was the first recipe that I had tried on this site that was actually good. I will be making these again. Oh, and if you can't find the Maggi Seasoning Sauce or if you don't want to pay around $2.50 for the 1/2 cup the recipe calls for, just use soy sauce or light soy sauce.

This recipe is fantastic. It will impress any guest! I can't believe how moist the chicken is every time I make this. The flavors blend perfectly -- it's definitely one of my TOP FAVORITES!!!!

What a wonderful taste! I only wish the sauce was a little thicker. Instead of cooking the chicken on a wooden shish-ka-bob stick, we cut ours into on inch thick strips and cooked on aluminum foil over the grill. Very tender and very tasty!

This chicken was excellent. It's a little work, but nothing major.The only thing is, I had to make more sauce. And I added a little more sugar,sake,and sesame oil. The result was perfect. And left-overs (if you're lucky) taste even better the next day.
