This recipe is so easy and quick to fix and it tastes good too. I used lite soy sauce and only 1 huge chicken breast but I made the entire amount of sauce so there would be enough to pour over the rice. Definitely a keeper. Read More

This was really good and versatile. I added the rind of an orange and cooked the chicken in oil infused with chili peppers. I will make it again. Read More

This was really good! I seasoned the chicken with salt paprika and ground mustard powder as suggested by another reviewer. Then I browned the chicken in oil and removed from the skillet and added about 4 cups of stir-fry veggies to the remaining oil until heated through. Then I poured in the sauce mixture which I doubled to accommodate all the added veggies and added back the chicken and let the sauce reduce some. Finally I added a little cornstarch mixed with cold water to thicken it a tad. The amount of sauce was perfect to coat all the meat and veggies and mix well with steamed rice on the plate. Yum!

I made this last night; it was a big hit with my boyfriend. I used more honey and pepper flakes and about half of the soy sauce. It was a little runny when the sauce/chicken was on the stove top so to try to thicken the sauce up and give the chicken more flavor I actually transferred the chicken and sauce into a baking dish and put it into the oven at 350 for 20-ish mins. It was wonderful that I did that. The sauce thickened a little bit and the chicken was so amazing because the sauce was able to infuse into the chicken more (like a glaze is suppose to do). Served it over rice and had stir fry vegetables as an option to mix in or keep on the side. Read More

I added some minced garlic to the sauce...and also before frying the chicken I dredged it with flour (and a little bit of salt and pepper)...after adding the sauce I brought it to rapid simmer and let it reduce so it would glaze over also the flour from the chicken helped the process taste very similar to what you'd get at a Chinese take put place but half the cost!

Poured in the sauce mixture (2X amount) to accommodate all the added veggies added back the chicken & let the sauce reduce some. Finally I added a little cornstarch mixed w/cold water to thicken it. The amount of sauce was perfect to coat all the meat & veggies. Served over cooked rice. Read More

A GLAZE is supposed to stick to the meal. This wasn't the case. It was runny. Also I expected it to be sweet (the honey) AND salty (the soy sauce) AND spicy (the red pepper). The honey overpowered everything. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. Read More

I've made this recipe twice now and both times it was very tasty. The first time I made it I thought it was a little runny so the second time I made it I put 2 Tbs of cornstarch in a plastic bag and coated the chicken prior to cooking. Not only did it thicken the sauce it also added some crispness to the chicken. Read More
