    This was really good. I prepped everything and my boyfriend actually cooked it all. He add chinese 5 spice, which kicked up the heat, it was really good. We also used whole wheat angel hair pasta, as he can't have carbs due to type 2 diabetes.

    This was my first attempt at making anything chinese inspired and I found it super easy and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly but did season the chicken as I fried it. Everything was great, sweet, but not overwhelming.

    Reading the reviews I wonder what we missed. My husband and I made this last night, exactly as printed, but found it very bland, lacking in flavor. Maybe seasoning the chicken before cooking might have helped a little.

    Easiest Asian-inspired dish! I skipped the ginger and it still turned out great!
