Very good! I was waffling between rating it a 4 or a 5 when DH said "This is definitely a 5!" So 5 it is! Instead of leaving the chicken breasts whole, I cut them up into bite-size pieces before browning. And somehow I forgot the brown sugar, but it was still so good! Made for the Unrated Asian Recipe Tag Game - July-August 2009.
