    Used brown rice, added frozen vegetable medley, used half ginger, and substituted 1 teaspoon of ground ceyenne red pepper instead of red pepper flakes. My fiance said "this is great! we'll have to make this again!" throughout the whole meal.Was very good, will make again. - 4/7/10

    Not bad, but way, way too much ginger! It was all I could taste. Will make it again, with just a dash. I would also use red pepper powder rather than the flakes, just to make the flavor more even. Update: made it with the changes, it was great! - 3/26/09

    This was pretty good as is. Next time I will use fresh ginger and I added 1 tsp. of sesame seed oil to give it a sesame flavor. But definitely an easy and tasty recipe! Thanks for sharing! - 8/1/08

    This is a keeper! Made with noodles instead of rice and the family raved about it! Going to use less red pepper flakes next time as it's a little too spicy for me. The rest of my family disagrees and thinks I should keep it like it is! - 5/15/12

    Too much ginger for me as well but otherwise it was good!. Next time I make it I'll decrease the amount of ginger. I actually added pineapple juice to make it thinner and my son loved it which is saying alot because he's a very picky eater. - 2/24/12

    I can see the potential with this dish. Unfortunately, my chicken turned out really tough, but I think it was the chicken brand. Also, I cut the ginger in half and I still think it was a little too much.

    Good part - I added chestnuts and that made for a great taste! I'll try it again. - 2/13/10

    Remaking it again, it was really good, but it isn't the same kind of sesame chicken you can get as take out. If you don't compare it to takeout however, it is fantasic. - 3/19/09
