    Loved this recipe so easy. I did double it and left out the water. Will definitely make again ❤️

    We loved it!! I did add the suggested spiratcha (spell check), and it was wonderful. They want it every week they said... & I totally agree. Thank you for this recipe. 😋

    Great! I'd make it with a little more sauce next time.

    My family didn’t love it but we did eat it so they must’ve liked it. I will definitely double up or maybe triple the sauce next time(we are saucy people.) overall not bad.

    I made this for myself, my fiancé, and his best friend. He said I can make it again any time I want. Paired it with some white rice, and it was delicious!! Really tastes like it's takeout. I added a bit of teriyaki sauce, personal preference. Very good, I will be making it again for sure.😍🤤

    Absolutely amazing! We added a finely diced apple to the mix, used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce & vodka sauce in place of the ketchup Also, for those watching their carbs we served it over riced cauliflower. It’s super quick as it only takes 3-4 minutes to cook as opposed to the 20 minutes for rice

    it was good but it's doesn't taste like the stuff from the mall. i would add less soy sauce and a little more brown sugar.

    Dinner turned out absolutely delicious. I chopped up some shallots and tossed them with the chicken. Excellent meal!
    I honestly can't believe that something so delicious was as easy as this!

    Super delicious. Really impressed with this simple recipe. I used chicken thighs instead of breast. Stays a little juicier. It says 30 min, but honestly with cooking the chicken and rice, it took a lot longer. Maybe 30 min if everything is prepped and cooked.

    This dish is great to make ahead and reheat! I don’t sear the chicken, I just put it in the mixture and it turns out just as delicious

    So good! Would probably also be good with chicken thighs as well. The recipe for the sauce is sooooo yummy! :) Might be a bit spicy for some, but for me it was fine. Above mild but below medium spiciness.

    Wow I like spicy but leave the red pepper out , either this person has no taste buds or is a jerk if I left the red pepper out it might be ok but my mouth is burning so much I can’t tell and I put in less red pepper than it called for

    Easy to make and tastes good. I halve the amount of chicken so I end up with twice the sauce.

    This is so yummy! Just add some rice and broccoli!

    Great recipe, somewhat spicy so watch how much you add of the red pepper flakes. I did half for those in my family who don't like spicy and then added the rest for those that do. I also added broccoli to it and it turned out awesome!

    I made this recipe for lunch.It was easy to prepare. I omitted the pepper flakes and replaced with a dash of black pepper and added broccoli to it. Served it with Jasmine rice.
