I've made this recipe quite often and have always loved it! This time I made it with chicken that I marinated in soy sauce, garlic, and fresh ginger, then dredged in corn starch & fried. It was AWESOME! Will definitely do it that way more often :.)

My daughters would love it if I made this every week! We love the recipe. I add a tablespoon or two of corn starch, or flour to thicken the sauce up just a bit. I also sometimes double the sauce (we like it saucey).

The hubby asked me to make this for him again tonight (and he is a picky eater)! We enjoy this dish all the time as it is one of our favorites. I choose to follow the original recipe to the T and it always comes out great. Some times I need the cornstarch for the sauce, other times I don't.

the only thing i did was coat the chicken in cornstarch before cooking it. i followed the directions exactly. the sauce definatly reduces and thickens without adding anything to it. if the directions are followed you really shouldnt have to add any cornstarch to it at all. if you find its not reducing then you simply havent cooked it long enough or the heat may be to low. everyone loved this and even my 7 year old who never likes chinese food. i will make this again for sure.

This was very good ... I'll probably cut back on the chilli pepper next time, as I'm not a big fan of spicy foods. I also found that if you let it cook out a little longer than the recipe recommends, the sauce reduces and thickens to a nice consistency. I think I'd like to add some steamed bell peppers to the mixture so we can get some veggies in there.

Fast and easy too. I also coated chicken pieces in corn starch before browning.And added broccoli the last three minutes. I think the sauce should be doubled also,especially if adding veggies. I will be making this again and again.

Great Recipe! We actually triple the sauce, and thicken with cornstarch, cause my kids love to put the sauce extra on the rice. I use applesauce instead of applejuice, and i dont add the red pepper flakes cause my kids are finicky.. but they all 3 eat it up!! Wonderful recipe!

This was wonderful. I doubled it and it seemed a bit hot so I added a touch more of brown sugar. Next time I will use 1/4 less teaspoon of the red pepper, but if you like it spicey - it's perfect as is! I will make this every month as it is very quick and easy.
