    I would give this more than 5 stars if I could! The flavors coming from the chicken were scrumptious! I took one reviewers advice and made Linda's Thai Sweet Chili Sauce to dip them in and it was just perfect for this chicken. Yummy!

    I can't remember when I have had a chicken dish that I enjoyed as much as I have this one! My favorite recipe that I have tried so far on Zaar!

    We really loved this dish! Delicately deep fried chicken pieces with loads of flavors, this dish is one not to be missed! I too made Linda's Thai Sweet Chili Sauce with these and everyone here couldn't get enough. We had along with Mexican Rice and it was devoured!

    I really loved the flavors and texture of the chicken... Very tasty! I made and served it with Recipe #206003. They went wonderfully together. Kind of like General Tsou's Chicken with added flavor of Rum and lime... It was Incredibly DELICIOUS! I will DEFINATELY be making this again and again... Great served with rice, pilaf or any other grain. I made this as part of the Halloween Swap 2007 Thank you Karissa!

I am in my late 20s and live in Oklahoma. I am married with no children yet (apart from DH!). I'm fluent in Spanish, and would love to learn more languages. I enjoy cooking, but baking is more my forte.
