I really liked this dish. The flavorful, sweet sauce was really good over brown rice. I had to use chicken tenders as the store was out of chicken thighs, so I cut down on the cooking time. The dish still tasted great, although I would like to try making it with chicken thighs in the future. [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
