    Pretty good for my first try!

    Flavorful. I added some red pepper flakes. This was pretty easy to make. I will try another variation of this recipe.

    Really good, but needed a bit more flavor I’ll add some red pepper flakes next time like others suggested

    Everyone loved this! Quick and easy to make. I didn't have low sodium chicken broth so I used regular chicken broth but used low sodium soy sauce instead. I only had a few green onions so I added a half of a yellow onion too. I will make this again.

    AMAZING! i left out the ginger because it was WAY too expensive for something i rarely use. i also swapped the sesame oil for sesame seeds & scallions for yellow onion and it turned out perfect! super easy and might just be the best dish i’ve ever made!

    Chicken was super moist. Great flavor. I added sesame seeds and next time I’m going to bump up the ginger too. I used ramen noodles instead of rice. My husband loved it!

    A simple yet delicious, weeknight meal that’s perfect for a family. I chose to double the recipe so there were leftovers. Leftovers re-heated well!

    It’s good, but as I expected it will be too salty & sweet for our taste preference, so I lessened the soy sauce & sugar. I made 12 servings (3lbs of chicken)—used only to 1/2 cup of soy sauce & 4 tbsp of sugar

    Loved this; had it with steamed green beans and basmati rice. I couldn't be bothered with the scallions, but unless they are cooked I generally don't. If you cheat with ginger paste in a tube, warning that near double isn't quite enough IMO. I also might use more sesame oil next time, too, and some red pepper for a bit of zing.

    We added green beans, cabbage, and orange peppers. It was great. Sprinkle with red chili flake

    This was quick and easy to adapt since I didn't have all fresh ingredients. My husband and I loved it and plan to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Next time I'll make extra sauce.

    Absolutely loved this recipe! Instead of having the garlic and ginger in separate measuring containers I added it together. As well as the brown sugar, soy sauce, and stock. To the stock I added Siracusa chili sauce to add a kick. Huge hit with my family and made the house smell delicious.

    Cute recipe but what it lacks in order to be truly great is hot chili! I also added some poached broccoli flowers with the scallions.
