5 stars for simple/few ingredients and ease of preparation/cooking. I like the fact that the ingredients are easily kept on hand. I used boneless skinless chicken tenders which trimmed the cook time to 20-25 minutes and cooked them in my toaster oven. I love the sauce and agree with Pizza Mama that it is like a sweet/sour sauce. Be sure to cook enough for leftovers :) Thanks Manami!

This was very good-almost like a sweet/sour. Even the picky 5-year old liked it! Thanks!
