    This was really easy and really tasty. I cooked as advised. the only addition i made was to add steamed broccoli (frozen in a bag that can be steamed) after all the ingredients were mixed together. i added the broccoli later because if added before the sauce i know from experience it would have sucked up all the sauce. I will surely make it again.

    It was very flavorful. Next time I will double the sauce and add extra chicken with some broccoli and snap peas.

    Husband Loved it. I added cold rice from 2 days ago, warming it with the entire dish. This calmed down the pepper flakes. Imo
    It tasted very good! I would make it again. The only thing that I will say is that it shouldn’t be under the “Easy Recipes” category. To julienne the carrots alone, it takes about 15 minutes.

    It was great.. my family loved it. I added more soy sauce then recipe called for plus I added broccoli. It was quick to make. Will definitely make again.

    Easy to make and tasty. I read the reviews prior to cooking and decided to increase the sauce. I tripled the sauce ingredients including the corn starch but next time will triple the sauce and only double the corn starch. It was a great amount of sauce to meat/vegetable ratio but just a little too thick. It was SO easy to make. We added broccoli to the dish. I used extra ginger and hubby liked the sweet heat.

    Simple & tasty. But be sure not to use too much ginger, so it does not overpower the other flavours.

    Was very delicious! Might scale back the honey next time for a less sweet sauce.

    Loved how easy this was. And only one pot! I bought the 90 sec. microwave rice for even more convenience! Was told to make it again so it will be added to my rotation!

    Quick, easy and tasty. The flavours didn't blow my mind but it was yummy and very easy so I'll definitely make it again for an easy dinner. Next time I'll make more sauce though as I served it with rice and it wasn't really saucy enough to coat the rice. Oh also I added baby sweetcorn, celery and snow peas.

    My family loved the sauce, but i knocked off a star for the chicken breast. I can never get chicken breast to cook properly without it getting dry. Will definitely be using this recipe again except with chicken thighs next time.

    Delicious. My toddler and I love it. Daddy finds it a little too spicy. Asian food I cook at home never tastes as good as take out but this tastes better.

    Added a 1/2 tsp of ground red pepper, turned out well
