    Simply perfect. Don’t let the listed process sway you. It’s much easier than it reads. You’ll actually impress yourself and those you feed.

    Like many others, made this in a skillet. Excellent flavor but didn’t get crispy.

    Good, but next time I need to double the sauce b/c I used 2 chicken breasts and the sauce wasn't enough. Also need to double the crushed red pepper amount.

    Tweaked a few things, less ginger, less garlic, used raw cane sugar, splash of sesame oil and avocado oil. Felt like serving needed to be double

    Good taste. Corn starch alone was not enough for breading. Next time I will use a heavier breading. Also the sauce was a bit too flavorful. I’m not sure what to reduce. A little experimentation is needed.
