      Very good, light and easy. I added garlic and pinch of red chili flakes.

      Very good recipe. It seemed to lack a certain zip, and I'm not sure if it needed more star anise or wine. I'll definitely make it again. Thanks.

      Delicious! I read through all of the reviews and here's my version: I prepped the sauce first thing in the morning and pounded out to 1/2" thickness chicken thighs and cut into thirds. Used 1/4 of the sauce as a marinade for the chicken. Chinese wine instead of dry sherry, reduced the fresh ginger to 1 tablespoon so a seven year old wouldn't complain about being too spicy. Refrigerated the chicken for about five hours. In a wok heated up a little bit of sesame oil on medium heat and lightly sautéed baby spinach. Plated the spinach then poured the sauce into the wok and brought to boil. Added the chicken and cooked both sides about 6 minutes, adding one clove of garlic minced the final 20-30 seconds just until fragrant. Transferred the chicken to the platter. Garnished with fresh cilantro, scallions, black sesame seeds and a few drop of toasted sesame oil. Served with a simple steamed then fried short grain rice. Prepared for Culinary Quest/Family Picks. Will definitely make again!
