I thought this tasted very good! This was very easy to prepare and it was enjoyed by all. The marinade is very flavorful, although there was not enough of it left over to drain and reserve for making the sauce at the end - almost every drop had soaked into the chicken. Still, I proceeded with the recipe and simply skipped the part where you mix some water and cornstarch with the drained marinade for a sauce. I think an easy solution would be to make up an extra batch of marinade to use for the sauce. I didn't miss the extra bit of sauce - the marinade had penetrated every bit of the chicken, making it very moist and flavorful. The only change I made was to use a red bell pepper instead of green just to brighten up the color a bit. All in all, I thought this was a very tasty dish.
This dish was super easy to make, and very good! i had all the ingredients in my kitchen. the only problem i found was getting the chicken to drain out the marinade. the next time i will marinade with half the batch of sauce, then add the other half batch to over the veggies at the end!! thank you for posting : )
