Very easy to follow recipe, awesome yummy dinner! I tried as hard as possible to stick to the recipe ingrediants wise, however did put apricots into the mix along with the syrup. (I like the extra bulk). Also served on a bed of brown rice. Rice took so long to cook that I ended up just putting the chicken in the sauce while I waited which let the flavour seep into the chicken. Thanks for a great meal!
The ingredients for this recipe were perfect however the amounts weren't quite right to me. I added extra of everything but the chicken, oil, and cumin, and the end result was very good. I was also a little disappoint that after I added the sauce to the chicken, the nice browning on the chicken went away. Even though it was still very moist and tasteful, it wasn't as eye appealing as I would have liked. Next time I might use the sauce just for dipping.
very good, I had to increase the ingredients slighty for 7 breasts, I omitted the cumin although I might add it in next time, I also added in 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic with the ginger, thanks for sharing Jewelies!
