I made this recipe substituting a lime and added a little brown sugar since I was out of honey. They turned out OK...I think there was something missing...maybe fresh ginger? Also my sauce didn't thicken but maybe that's because I used the 'quick' method. Next time I used the quick method I would cut the water down by 1/3-1/4 cup. Otherwise good. Thanks for the recipe!
I took these to a potluck with my rubber stamping group and they were a big hit. I didn't put in the peppercorns but otherwise followed the recipe - well OK, so I don't measure exact measurements and there was probably more garlic than 1T but tasted good and house smelled wonderful. Thanks for a great tasting, easy to make recipe.
The had a light flavor, not at all Chinese. Also they did not get crisp. The cooking did however make a wonderful smell throught the house. I will try them again but use a different method such as cook for an hour first then put sauce over.
This was so good, my husband wants his chicken cooked this way from now on! It just falls apart, and the sauce is to die for! I'm going to try it on tofu next. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. A definate keeper!!!
