    Amazing delicious and I LOVE this app!!!
    So good, my brothers and mum loved it but my husband and sis found it too spicy for her taste, so maybe 1 tbsp of sweet chilli sauce next time.. still a big hit for dinner.. thanks for the recipe!

    Sooo good! Since the shut down I’ve been craving Chinese and this definitely hit the spot and was easy! Tweaked the recipe a bit - used about 1.5 to 2 tablespoons of sesame oil, I think it’s definitely needed to achieve the right flavor. Used corn starch and added more as needed. Used 3 good sized chicken breasts and cut them into tiny bite sized bits, had to use two skillets to fry at the same time. After theyre fried they kind of remind me of Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets lol for the sauce: No ketchup. Didn’t have sweet chili paste just regular and it still tasted great! BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN THE SAUCE when you’re thickening it! (I did on my first attempt and had to remake) Double the sauce to begin with, triple it if you want extra to pour over your rice :)

    Delicious! Worth the effort and tasted like a takeaway. I added carrots and red pepper for a bit of veg and they worked well with it.

    I’d just add one TBS of ketchup instead of two, it overpowered it for me, other than that it’s great!!

    Amazing, great flavors and portions for the whole family. Definitely recommend. I opted to not use the sweet chili sauce and the chicken was still very flavorful.

    Great recipe. Next time we will double the sauce recipe because the chicken could have used more. We also found that we needed to fry the chicken in a lot more oil than what was given in the recipe.

    Absolutely gorgeous - chicken without the sauce also “better than XXX (a well known high st chicken outlet)” according to my kids.

    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!
