So delicious! I ate it for dinner and then chopped up on salad for my lunches during the week.

I WOULD CHANGE THE WAY IT IS MADE. INSTEAD OF ADDING CHICKEN BROTH I WOULD LEAVE THE CHICKEN IN THE PAN AND ADD EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE CHICKEN BROTH AND AT THE LAST COUPLE MINUTES I WOULD TAKE THE SIDE SAUCE POUR IT OVER THE CHICKEN AND REDUCE IT IN THE PAN WITH THE CHICKEN. IT WOULD BE MUCH MUCH BETTER!

This was great. The only reason I am giving a 4 instead of a five is because you should use low sodium soy sauce and low sodium chicken broth. I used both and the recipe was absolutely delicious. I also changed the directions a bit so it was easier to cook with less steps. I cooked the chicken, removed it from the pan. Sauteed the ginger and scallions for about 3 minutes then added the remaining liquids. I let it boil then added the chicken back to the pan and let simmer 12 minutes and turned off the heat and rest 10 additional minutes. Thanks for the recipe, I needed a new way to cook chicken.

This was full of flavor & so moist. I didn't have anything but chicken tenders & I just cut cooking time down a few min. I always make 3 days of food ahead all in 1 day & then we heat it up; cause we are always on the go!
