Add 1/2 cup hoisin sauce to this recipe. Also, I used eight cloves of garlic. Marinate chicken. Grill until done. Add chicken and remaining marinade in glass baking dish and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. I had a friend who said I could stay at his house if I make this dish. He was that crazy about it.

Fabulous! I marinate in zip lock bag, remove, save marinade. grill chicken. Put Chicken & marinade into ovenproof casserole dish, bake at 350 degrees 45 min. To DIE for. Served with short grain steamed rice. When I served, I was told I could not go anywhere unless I brought this dish with me.
