    When I chose this recipe there were 3 reviews and all gave it 5 stars. I followed the recipe precisely because of the glowing reviews. Whoa! SALTY!! Nice flavors but soy sauce, fish sauce and salt? I will make it again, no tsp. salt and I will add 1 more tblsp. sugar and perhaps some heat. (Excuse me, I have to go check my blood pressure.).  -  06 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Easy to do, great to taste. I substituted chicken thighs for chicken wings & marinated them for about 3 hrs. Then I grilled them on the BBQ flat plate for a short time ( 2/3 minutes each side)and finished them off on the open char grill flame. Tender & Delicious!!  -  28 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
