My chicken got a little dried out, though the flavor was ok (but needed salt). I used ground ginger instead of minced and only used 1 teaspoon then. After simmering 20 minutes, I removed the chicken and added a little roux to thicken the sauce and put it over the chicken and also over rice. During dinner we added some soy sauce, which really gave a nice contrast, so if I make this again, I'll add some soy sauce during the cooking process.

Horrible. I made this for my husband and I. We threw it away. Even though we were hungry for dinner. YUCK!
