      This is the best recipe I've tried so far for Chinese take-out at home. I followed the recipe as best as I could except I ran out of soy sauce so I just used teriayki sauce to mix with the chicken and cornstarch. I completely forgot to add the egg in, but it still turned out great. I only had a little over a pound and a half of chicken but still made the sauce as written. That turned out to be a little too much sauce, but I'm sure it works nicely with the full amount of chicken. I will definitely make this again. Next time I'd like to try adding some red pepper flakes to it.

      This was tasty! I made a couple of changes, though. I used 1/2 cup sugar, added a bit more cornstarch, and added a teaspoon of sesame oil, and less ginger, and a touch of rice wine vinegar. Other than that, I followed it to a tee, and it was great. I liked that it was less eggy than other recipes, and had a sweetness that was great with the chicken. I served it with rice and steamed broccoli. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks!
