Very nice! Fresh and zesty, the sauce was lovely. It was so quick to make too. We don't get corn syrup here so I used 2 dessert spoons of sugar instead, I think it would have been even better with honey, but I had none on hand. Next time I think I'll use two cloves of garlic because I just love garlic. My toddler ate it enthusiatically, but I only gave it four stars instead of 5 because my husband said it was just 'okay'. Thank you very much for this recipe, I will be adding it to my regular weekday menu.

This was very, very good. It had a light, fresh flavor that wasn't overly sweet, and I can see that it's going to be a very versatile recipe. The only thing I did differently the first time I made it was to cook the chicken in part sesame oil and part canola oil, and topped the chicken with some thinly slice green onion. I served this over some sesame rice. I might add some peas or celery next time. And I promise you that there will be a next time! Thanks so much for posting!
