    Turned out good. I made the chicken in the air fryer, but next time, I’ll actually fry it in oil. I think the coating will turn out better.

    Loved this. I made this with seafood mix instrad of chicken and 6 portions and could have made more. So delicious and perfect. Will keep this recipe and make again soon.

    It was pretty good, we doubled up on the chicken and sauce. We used dark brown sugar instead of regular brown sugar, which made it a bit too sweet. We let it sit for a day and it got spicier afterwards. But otherwise good!

    Delicious, I doubled on the garlic and sriracha sauce. Skip on the oil for the sauce since it’s already fried.

    Sauce in itself was delicious very close to what I’d get at a restaurant. Next time I will add a couple chili’s to spice it up a bit but aside from that the recipe is solid 👌🏻

    I overcooked my veggies. So probably my fault.

    We doubted it but loved the cornstarch as opposed to a batter. The crispiness was perfect, although I might add the sauce to the veggies first next time to maintain some of the crispy of the chicken a little better when mixed with the sauce. I used extra garlic, broccoli, and red pepper to make it a little veggier!

    Very, very good and easy. I would add less brown sugar, and I added a little rice vinegar to the sauce. The whole family loved it.

    The sauce is great!! I’ll probably make a batter to fry the chicken in the get it crispier next time!!

    Came out delicious, I added a green bell pepper and used califlower mixed with broccoli. I do think there was a little too much ginger, next time I won’t put so much in.

    I made this recipe for a quick dinner. Unfortunately I didn’t have any broccoli or red bell peppers, but even with just the chicken it was delicious. My husband and I both loved it, and we are big Asian foodies. Will definitely try this again, this time I’ll make sure to have the veggies.

    Easy and straightforward recipe. Just a tad too salty for my taste (was quite thirsty afterwards)
