    I used two shallots instead of the onion, and swapped the tomato paste and 1.25 cups of water for 8oz of tomato sauce plus a 1/4 cup water. It has a nice great consistency and good flavour. Will definitely be making it again.

    I used two shallots instead of the onion, and used an 8oz can of tomato sauce plus 1/4 c water and eliminated the tomato paste and the 1.25 cups of water. It had a good smell and good flavour. I will be making it again. Thank you.

    This had a nice flavor, but the sauce was too thin, so I had to add extra cornstartch, and cook it longer than than the directions said. I added a dash of siriacha, and tripled the recipe, as I was feeding a large group for a family party. Visually, it isn't all that appealing (kind of a pinkish color) but had a good flavor. As I was feeding a large crowd, we used a good-quality popcorn chicken that had been oven-baked for crispness.

    The tomato paste overpowers this. Sorry- we did not like this at all.
