    This dish was really delicious! Next time I will make double portion of sauce (as it was recommended) or maybe add some bell pepers so that rice is not too dry.

    OH my gosh! this is so delicious and relatively easy. The hardest part is not eating all the chicken before it goes back into the pan!;)

    It turned out very good. I did add a bit more of some of the sauce ingredients to get it perfectly the way I like it.

    Delicious, pretty easy to make but a long time to fry all the chicken as I doubled everything. Added red peppers and broccoli and served over rice I added a cup of chopped cilantro and everyone said it was needed

    this came out great as far as flavor, we decided to double the sauce recipe and I'm soooo glad we did otherwise it would have been so dry!

    I didn't use any cornflour because I didn't have it, but it came out great using the rest of the ingredients

    The sauces is stunning good. The coating on the chicken was a bit more difficult to handle with 3 steps, corn flour, egg, regular flour. By the time i hit the pan it would glob up. But it tasted quite nice. I would like the coating to be a bit crunchier. Maybe some bread crumbs, corn flakes, I don't know. I am just an idiot single guy cooking. But I make the sauce for everything now. Quite Asian/American and i live in HK!

    Really good! I would only leave out the sugar next time, since it would be sweet enough.

    Very delicious and looked just like the picture, however it wasn’t really enough for the 4 of us, would recommend adding more chicken.
