I doubled the recipe for the sauce. Glad I did because the whole family loved the sauce, and drizzled on their rice. Good amount of sweetness with spice. Read More

entire family enjoyed this. very delicious. nice touch of heat but not a lot. nice and tender chicken. will definitely make again. of course if the heat scares you then just add less pepper flakes. but I would not eliminate them. it really adds to the experience. Read More

I made it with no changes whatsoever. The sauce is delicious and would make a great dipping sauce for spring rolls or egg rolls. This recipe has been added to my "keeper" file. Read More

Ditto on doubling the recipe - increased time to 10 min but next time I’ll do 12-15 min as chicken was only at 140 after 10 min. Sauce was delicious, chicken was perfect after 15 min more in oven. 5 star review by all 5 kids Read More

One of the better instant pot Asian flavored recipes I have tried. I add some frozen stir fried vegetable mix from Costco at the end to heat thru but not get over cooked. Ladle over rice. I also doubled the sauce. Read More
