    This was so delicious. I added some blanched broccoli, made twice the amount of sauce and served over Jasmine Rice. Better than any takeout.

    Really good, i doubled the sauce, i didnt have any rice wine vinegar, but i used white wine instead White wine has a stronger flavor so i used half vinegar and half water, and it came out great!

    This was amazing. I made this for a gaggle of teenage girls who are never hungry. There was not a single chicken nugget left!

    Winner of a dinner. I halved any of the “spicy” spices for my little ones who are not so great with spicy foods and it came out perfectly. Tasted great with the smallest kick of spice.

    Made this today & it was so good. Only comment though, would be to add a little more soy sauce/salt, since it was a bit too sweet.

    Made this and it was fantastic. We tend to not like things super sweet so only used 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of brown sugar. Came out perfect!

    Amazing recipe! Only adjustment was cider vinegar as I didn’t have white wine vinegar, didn’t add spring onions (didn’t have any) and doubled the recipe for my large family. It’s a winner! Will definitely make again.

    Delicious, no modifications.

    definitely something to cook again. Also, I put half the sugar and around 3/4 of the honey. if you want it to look like the picture put some more of each ingredient for the sauce.

    beautiful. I recommend adding cashew nuts and also grill the sesame seeds before sprinking over to really make the sesame flavour pop. 👍

    I made this exactly as per the recipe and instructions, i had to cook my chicken in three lots but it was worth it, it was fantastic, everyone commented on how good it was. Look forward to making this again

    Far too sweet. If I make it again I would drastically reduce the amount of sugar.

    Very good, though i did find the sauce a bit sweet for my liking.
