This was quick, but when I made it, it turned out super salty. Not sure if it was my soy sauce or the sweet chili sauce I got. Any suggestions welcome. I'm just a mom trying to find and make delicious meals for my family, so any corrective suggestions would be awesome!

This made for a quick and tasty weeknight meal. It made quite a bit of sauce and I didn't want to let it cook too long. Next time I would increase the chili sauce or add red pepper flakes and add some cornstarch. There will be a next time as in the words of my DS, "This would be one of my top five dinners!" Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

This was good, but we thought it was a little on the sweet side and my sauce did need to be thickened with cornstarch. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
