OK, this recipe doesn't have the 'WOW' factor of some of our more modern Asian influenced food, but I'm giving it 5 stars for what it is - good, economical, easy-to-make, stick to your ribs family fare. I DID add an extra teaspoon of curry powder, and I DO think the recipe needed the extra 3/4 teaspoon of salt I added to the sauce. The result was a hearty, tasty meal that turned 3 large chicken breasts into seven generous servings. Thanks Snooky. A great recipe which I'll make again.
