      Very unique recipe and very flavorful. Hubby thought it was a bit to sweet, but if you like sweet and sour chicken you will love this. I used 1/3 tsp of Ginger, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1/2 tsp of paprika and a dash of salt in the flour. The ginger gives it great flavor.

      I was looking for something different to serve guests. This guest in particular is a good chef herself so I wanted to impress her. This was a winner. First of all everyone loved it including the kids. The guests were trying to guess the ingredients. It was great. I did cut the chicken into thin long strips instead of chunks. I also served it reheated and the flavor only intensified. Great job Mirj and balsamic vinegar is a definate favorite of mine so it was nice not to just use it in salad dressing.
