This is a wonderful keeper. Like others, I dusted my chicken in corn starch before I started cooking it which definitely helped to thicken the sauce. I also chose to cut the sugar back by almost 1/2 which worked out perfect for us. As for the ginger, I added a little extra...I took my vegetable peeler and peeled fresh strips of ginger and added them directly to the pot. Everything else I kept the same. I served the chicken over rice with Chinese style sesame green beans on the side. Much less expensive the take-out and better tasting too. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing.
I had 8 People over for dinner last night and every one of them enjoyed this recipe. Loved it, thank you.
Delicious! A tad on the spicy side, so I cut down on the red peppers and doubled the sauce. I'm vegetarian, so I made it using Quorn pieces, which worked out heavenly. I served it with a 'triple jade' vegetable mixture over rice. So very good!
Too salty, even with reduced sodium soy sauce. 2-3 Tablespoons is all you really need. Replace missing soy with water. I didn't find this hot at all, ended up adding some chili oil to it once plated for added spice. Reminds me more of General Tso's Chicken than bourbon chicken. I also coat my chicken in corn starch before cooking it, just my family's preference, It is wonderful either way.
not that this needs another review...but great easy sauce to make, full of flavor. I threw different veggies in when it was simmering...and they steamed up great. chicken is so tender. hubby loved it too.
Great recipe!! I have made it several times, I double the sauce except the red pepper and ginger. SO GOOD!!
Great flavor and so simple to throw together on a weary night. After reading other reviews, I decided to toss the chicken in cornstarch before frying. This really helped to thicken the sauce. I'm afraid it wouldn't be as appealing without it. Next time I might add some peanuts or cashews for added flavor and crunch.
I wasn't terribly impressed with this recipe, especially for how highly it's been reviewed. It's nice and easy, which is great, but the end result just isn't all that special. I liked the heat from the red pepper, but I think it needs something else. I see some people are serving it with broccoli or pineapple, I'll probably try something like that next time, and possibly thicken the sauce. Bottom line, this is a super easy recipe, that I will probably try again, it just didn't "wow" me or my husband.
Delicious! My husband loved it! I served it with brown rice and broccolli.
After seeing this recipe dozens of times I finally decided to try it. I can see why there are almost 3000 reviews. It was delicious. I cut down on the hots but it was still a little too hot for me. I also added a little cornstarch. I can't wait to try this sauce with pork. Great recipe. Thanks!
