    I used low sodium soya sauce but the two tsp of salt in the batter made this dish way too salty.

    This was great, really crisp texture on the outside with a wonderful flavour and tenderness on the inside! I only had blanched almonds for the dough not toasted almonds for serving so I ommitted those. The only other thing I didn't have was plum sauce so made a sweet & sour sauce from red currants, but that was all strictly because of what I had and I know it would have been just perfect as posted.

    I loved the ground almonds in the batter mixture, however I didn't like the fact the chicken was "black" from the soya sauce and I didn't like the ginger taste. Would make it again without the marinating. Sorry!

    I was a little confused by the "plum sauce" in the ingredients and the "cherry sauce" in the directions. I enjoyed the chicken strips with rice and Sweet & Sour sauce. This is not a quick-easy dish, but the chicken was delicious, thus the 5 stars. I will make this again! Thanks for posting Leslie .
