    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.
    Easy to make and absolutely delicious, thank you 😋

    I have made this twice as it is delicious & really easy to make.
    Good recipe! But I made some changes: -To the sauce I added fresh ginger, orange zest, orange juice and green onions, plus a little corn starch to thicken it more. -The rice I added coconut milk, chicken stock, and salt - and topped it off with carrots and bell peppers sautéed in sesame oil, fish sauce, and soy

    Was really easy to make, albeit a little time consuming coating the chicken in the flour. Sauce tasted perfect and was just the right consistency. Will definitely make this again!

    👍🏾👍🏾 very delicious. i didn’t have sweet chili sauce so i used sriracha instead. My husband and I don’t like spicy food so I only added 1 tablespoon and it was just enough spice for us. Would definitely make again

    I made a big old mess in my kitchen, but it was worth it! I added some vegetables and peanuts while cooking the sauce for some extra nutritional value.

    Its a great recipe, just cooked it for the missus and child, they loved it. My wife said she usually doesnt like chinese chicken, however this one is now one of her favorites. Definitely going to be cooked again, very tasty recipe.

    Would make again, although would strongly consider how to create the sauce. Maybe try without sesame oil and monitor amount of honey.

    It was yummy! I tweaked the sweetness down a little and added some minced onion and tumeric to the sauce to give it more flavor. Husband and teenager liked it a lot! 👍
