Enjoyed this one. Just takes a little stirring and that's about all there is too it. I used an extra-spicy BBQ sauce. The tangy flavor was nice and I liked the crunch of the water chestnuts. Kids and husband thought it was great, too. Thanks for an easy dinner.

As I was making this, I was wondering how all the different ingredients would taste together. I sampled the chicken with the sauce, and thought it was probably a 3 star. Pretty sweet, and had an odd flavor. Not odd bad, just odd. I let everything kind of marinate over night, and served it over rice tonight. What a big difference the rice made! Definately cut down on the sweet taste! I am going to try making this again, and freezing some like the Uncle Ben's rice bowls I used to eat. It will make for a good lunch! Thanks!

Even my picky eaters gave this dish 5 stars. I chose this recipe at the last minute because I had all ingredients except chestnuts, which I will add next time. I diced fresh chicken breast and stir fried it in the skillet then added the sauce and pineapple. I keep fresh ginger in my freezer so I shredded that instead of using ground ginger. It adds such a great flavor! Served it over brown rice. It was so easy and fast I will definitely make this often!
