Sweet...yes. Spicy...yes. Sticky...no Very good flavor but I had the same problem other reviewers mentioned about the sauce not thickening up. I will make it again with the following changes: 1. Dredging the chicken strips in flour before sauteing which will help them brown better and help thicken the sauce. 2. Saute on med.-high heat instead of medium. The heat called for in the recipe is not enough to sear the chicken. 3. Simmer the sauce while I am preparing the chicken then add to the chicken as called for. Because it took much longer than 8-10 minutes to reduce the sauce and the chicken dried out. I should add my husband loved this recipe. The flavors are good. Thanks.
A-MA-ZING...simply amazing! I followed the advice of other reviewers and dredged the chicken in flour first. Then I sauteed an onion and some peppers and set aside. Next was to quickly sear/brown bite-sized pieces of chicken (you want that crunchy coating) and added the sauce and cooked veggies to simmer. For the hot sauce you MUST use Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (Rooster Sauce). It MAKES the dish. My chicken was sticky sweet and spicy just the way it was supposed to be. What an amazing flavor profile. I'm thrilled with this recipe!
AWESOME AWESOME chicken. Used ground ginger and 1 tbs. of hot sauce but could hardly taste it. If you like spicey use both. My came out VERY sticky! Here's what I did: cut up chicken into small chuncks put in bag with flour and shake until lightly coated. Put in frying pan at #8 of 10...very hot until started to really brown. Took several minutes. Then I added the sauce tossed dropped to #3 and put lid on until rice was done probably 15 minutes. Continue to use the same pan even though the chicken sticks and burns on the botton!!!! All that stuff makes it sticky! Will make again and again!
I followed the recipe pretty much exactly. I did notice that when I poured the sauce over the chicken it seemed to be taking way too long to reduce. I was also afraid of over-cooking the chicken so I took it out of the pan. When the sauce reduced to a thick molasses constistancy I put the chicken back in to coat it. I think the juices of the chicken were keeping the sauce from reducing properly and I wanted the chicken juice in the chicken not the sauce. This came out good and we enjoyed it but the chicken was a trifle dry. Next time I'll remove the chicken as soon as it's browned reduce the sauce and then add the chicken back. Thanks for the recipe!
Really delicious tastes like something from a local restaurant that we really like. I did make several modifications though. I lightly floured the chicken and then seared it in a pan sprayed with Pam on medium high and sprayed the chicken while cooking instead of using oil. Turned down to low after chicken was browned before adding the sauce. I used 3 Tbps of soy sauce an extra tablespoon of brown sugar because we like our meat sweet and used squeeze tubes of garlic and ginger which gave the sauce a thicker consistancy and made it super easy to cook & thicken it was finished in minutes! Also I added a chopped sauteed vidalia onion so good with the sauce! Served over rice.
I try lots of new recipes and this is the best one I've tried in a long time. It scored a huge homerun with hubby and all three kids (5 8 11). It is a rare feat to find something that everyone raves about. Just the right mix of sweet and spicy. So quick simple and made with ingredients I always have on hand. I'll be making this over and over again. FYI: I doubled the sauce and dredged the chicken in flour salt and pepper before frying. I cooked the chicken in two batches cooked it until completely done then added 1/2 of the sauce. It "stickied" up quickly and I didn't need to cook it the extra 8 minutes the recipe calls for. I think it might have burnt if I had done that. My 11-year old couldn't stop raving - "Mom this is like the stuff you get at the Chinese restaurant only 10 times better!" Give this one a try! UPDATE: My kids asked for this a second time this week and I obliged! I tripled the sauce this time thinking I'd like some extra sauce to serve over rice. BIG MISTAKE - it thickened up too much and wasn't saucy enough to serve over rice. AND it also completely changed the taste and texture - the sauce was overwhelming and the chicken was "goopy" rather than "sticky" like the last time I made it. We were all disappointed with the way it turned out tonight. I will stick with the way I made it the first time.
With a few tweaks this could be a staple in the dinner rotation. I had to use powdered ginger because when unpacking the groceries they had forgotten to pack the fresh ginger...and how many times has THAT happened? A lot! I also doubled the sauce amount and it turned out to be too much/too intense.
