i have been searching for a recipe for honey peach chicken, my favorite dish at my local chinese restaurant, forever. the good people in the recipezaar forums suggested i try this. i followed your instructions exactly - the walnuts didn't take SO long... i just kept boiling them and changing the water as i prepped everything else. i did use thinly sliced chicken breast instead of shrimp, i doubled the sauce (because i knew from reading your recipe it would be the same and i love it), and i added some sliced canned peaches. i cooked the chicken in many batches, then when i was finished i tossed everything together (the cooked chicken, peaches, walnuts and sauce) and stir fried over the flame for a few minutes to make the peaches and sauce warm. served it with mushroom rice. it was perfectly fantastic. would it be wrong to say i love you? i am just so happy i finally tracked down this recipe. thank you!
I messed up a bit, so its my fault its not an awesome rating. At first my walnuts werent done or sweet enough, so i thought to toast them off in the oven with some sprinkled sugar. I bought already cooked shrimp, so they ofcourse came out rubbery. Boy! I boiled those things about 5 times, and the water was NOT any clearer. lol. I made lots of sauce by the time i was done with it. Too much lemon for me, so i dumped a bunch more of condensed milk, a lil mayo and another tbl spoon of honey. I thought "Oh well.. ill have plenty of sauce for my wal.... MY WALNUTS!" I totally SCORCHED them in the oven. D'oh. Oh well, im eatin it by golly. It took me 2 hours to make, i dont care how burnt it is. Im sure itll be MUCH better next time as long i dont screw it up again!
I really love this dish, I use low fat condensed milk and it still taste good. Thanks for posting this recipe.
I'm overseas in Germany and suddenly the craving hit me for this dish from an Asian Diner back home. This recipe was very close. I think I would just add a little less lemon juice, but this really hit the spot! Thanks for sharing :)
it was really good, just like i used to order from my favorite Chinese restaurant in college. I added some of the walnuts into the batter with the shrimp before I fried them (I had loads of them because i love walnuts). it gave the shrimp a little extra crunch.
