This recipe is from the California Poultry or EATCHICKEN.COM It looked too good not to post!!

This is in the oven since its been too cold to grill here. Bake at 350*F for 45 minutes till done then for the last 5 minutes baste with the glaze and marvel at your handy work!

I freeze my ginger nobs and grate the frozen ginger onto wax paper and that seems to help me from running out of ginger when I get the notion to add Asian Flair to a recipe.
