    Excellent! I grilled up some chicken and cut it up, served over brown rice with the sauce over the top. Even my 11 year old daughter loved it...a little spicy but delicious...not sure I could get 12 servings, we only got 4. Definately will make again! - 10/26/08

    I used half the amount of sugar but kept everything else the same. It lowered the calories and turned out great. It was slightly runny, but that made it easier to use less. It worked out to 40 calories for 12 servings. - 3/16/10

    All I can say is WOW!!! I honestly didn't think it was going to turn out as fabulous as it did!! My kids loved it and my neighbor said it was better than Panda Express.. I added a tad more rice vinegar and a little more ginger for a little more zing but I am definitely keeping this recipe!! - 3/25/08

    Great with chicken or pork leftovers, just add your favorite veggies and rice and you have a homemade meal without the extra calories of takeout! - 2/10/08

  • Delishious. Put it over chicken tenders I dredged in a little seasoned cornstarch and sauteed in olive oil. Served with a mixture of stir fry veggies and baby bella mushrooms. Will definately make again. - 1/27/13

  • Dude. I freakin' forgot the vinegar! Like a spaz! But, it came out so incredibly delicious. I made brown rice, with some fried eggs and then in a separate pan I sauteed an array of veggies and put the sauce on them and then poured my toppings over my rice. I think next time I'll also cut the sugar. - 1/17/13

  • Delicious! I used apple cider vinegar cause its what I have. I wonder if rice vinegar would be even better? Could use a little more red pepper for my taste, but as is the kids decided it was edible. :) Mine was a little thin, but I think I should've just cooked it longer, I had to run off to work. - 9/7/12

  • This was better than the Chinese restaurant. I used the zest of 2 oranges and juice of one and only 3/4 cup of brown sugar. I wanted to really taste the orange. I like the use of cornstarch to thicken sauce. I have made this before from another recipe that did not call for the thickener. - 3/27/11

  • It's definitely tasty, but the calorie count is off the charts - over 1,000 calories just for the sauce... that's not bad if you can feed 12, but the recipe feeds more like four. - 5/7/09
