Wonderful! I marinated the chicken in some chicken broth and 1/4 cup of soy sauce for extra flavor. Then discarded the marinade and follwed the recipe. No additional soy sauce. At the end I spinkled with a few toasted sesame seeds. This is a keeper. Read More

This was a good start but it needed some help. I added ginger sesame oil lemon juice a little cherry preserves red pepper flakes and some fresh chopped cilantro. Served with hot chili garlic sauce - excellent. Thanks! Read More

This was really good! I loved the flavor. I diced my chicken first and served over rice. It had a sort of oriental feel to it and made a nice light dinner on a warm evening. Read More

I thought the recipe was fantastic! It was easy to make and delicious. I added 2T of the cornstarch and 2T of the water...I liked the glaze a little thicker. It is definitely a keeper! Read More

I only used 4 chicken breasts as they seemed to be a little larger. I pounded them first to make it tender then diced them after I slightly browned them. The sauce seemed to be soaked up by the chicken and tasted great but I ended up making a second batch of sauce since there really wasnt any to pour over the rice. I origionally had all the ingrediants on hand but not enough apricot for a second batch of sauce so I used orange marmalade it was interesting but next time I'll just stick with apricot. The fact most of the juice soaked up could be because I added frozen broccli which was a terrific addition. Next time I'll just double the sauce from the start. It tasted sort of like sweet and sour chicken. My husband said it fantastic and that he loved it and the kids ate it up too yumming all the way without out having a clue about how healthy it was.

This was nice and easy for a quick weekday meal that everybody liked. I thought the soy sauce was a bit overpowering so I'll leave it out next time. Read More

Tasted pretty good but next time I would cut the chicken up to smaller pieces coating all sides. Mine was kind of thick. Read More

I added a little more soy ginger pepper flakes rice vinegar and some thai fish sauce for depth of flavor and YUM! Sweet sour salty umami. I also reduced it a lot before thickening. Read More
