    Excellent review from my family. I added an onion and red pepper to the dish.

    It had excellent flavor. I added fresh ginger, green peppers, and onions. I omitted the dried chili flakes. I used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce and honey in place of brown sugar. (Most of the changes are dietary necessities for my family).

    Not bad, just not super flavorful. Browning the chicken might have sealed it off in a way that prevented it from absorbing the sauce

    Absolutely delicious! I actually poured prepared sauce,over my raw chicken breasts and baked it in an uncovered casserole dish for 20 mins. Than stirred in a 1/3 c of long grain raw rice and cup of water, Returned to oven until rice was done. Dish was enjoyed by all!

    It is really tasty! I cooked the chicken in a crockpot with pineapple juice garlic and ginger and the rice while I ran errands got home and made the rest of the sauce and then added the cooked chicken it was super easy I didn't have tamari so I just did soy sauce

    Very tasty! I had to cut the recipe in half because I was low on chicken but it tasted great. I made sure to add in the red pepper flakes and that gave it a great kick. Nice mix of savory and sweet!

    I made it a while back and it tastes delicious, my whole family loved it, and even my sisters best friend who is in culinary college said it was good, but there was ust one problem, the ingredients used to make the sauce could be doubled, cause there wasnt enough sauce, so whenever i make it again(and am in the process of making it right now again) i am going to double the ingredients used in the sauce
