Very tasty and very easy to make. Thanks for the recipe!
This was fantastic ! Very easy to make and the family loved it (even the picky 16 year old who hates fish sauce !) I will make this a regularly at my place !
This is absolutely outstanding. The sweet caramelization of the chicken combined with the little heat from the chili pepper are terrific. I used splenda brown sugar blend to cut the sugar a little (and calories), it worked a treat. Made and reviewed for PAC fall 07
