    Way too sweet cut back on the brown sugar. Otherwise it was ok.

    Very simple recipe. Good flavors. I used about 1 1/2 lbs of chicken and still had plenty of sauce. I'll probably use chicken thighs next time for better flavor

    Great recipe will make again had no hoison
    Great recipe! Easy instructions with common ingredients, sauce has a great flavor, and the cornstarch coated chicken was perfect to thicken the sauce and add just a bit of crunch. I will definitely make this again!
