The ingredients and sauce are great, but when I added the breaded deep fried chicken to the sauce all the batter came off the chicken and soaked up the sauce leaving a weird textured mush. I would make this again but simply stir fry the chicken so it would leave more pleasant sauce, it would also be alot healthier and lower in fat.

Way too much honey, that is all we tasted! Even after adding red pepper flakes and hot chili sauce, it still tasted like honey. The sauce was too thick. I used stir fried chicken, we do not fry anything in batter, too much fat.
