    Very very nice. I used a mix of dark soy and kecap manis, stir fried some veg - cappsicum, onion, snow peas bok Choy and added it to wok at the same time as the chicken and the I only used half of the sauce.

    Turned out well. Added some green onion at the end to add color.

    The sauce is really good! However, we didn't have a deep fryer so we used a pan with oil.

    Very good will make a double batch next time, good dish to take for pot luck. Need to find good side dish for this chicken dish . The taste was very tangy, I would highly recommend this to my friends and family. I would rate it a five star.
