it was good but not for us. the ginger was to much for me and we found it a lil salty. i think it would have been perfect if we had it as is before you added the 2 cups water mix... i wouldnt tell people not to try it, just personal taste i guess! will try next time as i said and cut the ginger in half.

GREAT, GREAT combo of flavors, what with chicken, pineapple, sesame, & then adding the soy & ginger, well . . . Definitely a keeper of a recipe, since I'll be making this one often! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Special Recipe Swap #19]

Quick & easy weeknight dish! It had the right balance of sweet & sour, but we could have used a little more spice. The sesame seeds gave the sauce a nice texture. I used 1 tsp finely chopped homemade crystalized ginger, in place of the ground ginger, but other than that prepared as written & served over brown rice. Next time I'd like to try adding some chopped green pepper as well as a little extra soy sauce & ginger. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
