    Turned out great and the family loves it.

    Turned out great however, next time I will just cook all the way through on the stove to eliminate the extra dishes and to keep it a little crispy. I also doubled the sauce.

    Yummy!!!!! We ended up thining the sauce out torward the end. May be i used too much chicken and starch?? Either way it was very good. I will keep playing with this recipe and figure out the ratio that we need to feed our family. Thank you for sharing this with every one.

    did not use sesame seeds or green onions just cause i didnt want to go to the store. turned out great. has a good kick of heat in it. i do need to work on my skills at properly frying it up before putting it in the slow cooker though....

    Juicy and delicious. Used a rice cooker, white rice setting and just added half a cup of water.

    Made x2 cooking the breading with prescribed amount of oil and tempture and with with twice as much oil and temperature and have not got good results with the breading. Besides that very tasty and delicious.

    This recipe was great! Will make it again for sure. Placed the chicken over a bed of fried rice with a side of stir fried vegetables and pan fried okra.

    I loved it. High flavour and an interesting balance of sweet and sour. Toasted the sesame seeds which finished it off beautifully. Delicious.

    Didn’t like this recipe. Sauce was way too overpowering.
    Grozis a year ago
    Way too sweet. Tasted more like spicy BBQ than Asian food. Next time, I’d cut the brown sugar down by at least half.

    This will be one of my go to dishes, I used red wine vinegar in stead of the rice wine vinegar, 😋this dish was amazing ❤️
