This was just superb! The sauce is delicious and definitely something I will cook again and again. Fresh ginger and garlic must be used. I don't think dried will work as well here.

We thought this was wonderful. I cooked the carrots until they were still slightly hard, then sauted them in the frypan with the sauce. Excellent. The sauce by itself is a winner, and I'll be using it for Honey Garlic Chicken. Thanks for a terrific recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
