      I really liked this recipe and it was very easy. I also changed it up a bit, especially since there were so many comments about the sweetness. I put in about 1Tbl of ketchup, a whole can of cranberry sauce, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar and 2 TBL of stone ground mustard. I also let it simmer about 30 mins. It was really good. Next time I will add some cracked pepper and some fresh cranberries too. Yummy!

      LOVED this! The 4 of us gobbled it up! It is a different twist on sweet and sour chicken. Will make this again for sure!

      Yummy and quick. Will definitely make this again on a busy night. I used a bit over 1 pound of chicken breast tenders, which I cut into smaller strips. This recipe makes a LOT of sauce. The sauce is very sweet. I think next time I will use the whole can of cranberry sauce, as someone else mentioned, and omit the brown sugar and use 1 1/2 pounds of chicken (for a generous 6 to 8 servings). Between the ketchup and the cranberry sauce, there is already plenty of sweetness. Thanks for the recipe!
