    Very nice recipe. Easy to make and the taste was very good. My wife loves brown sauce sweet and sour chicken, so i will be making this more often. I too added 3/4 cup of water, but it was a little thin, so next time i will cut to 1/2 cup. Thanks for sharing. - 1/11/09

    I noticed that the calorie count was off on this. It shows 4 oz. of chicken breast is 20 calories, when it should be 125. I think this comes from an error in the calculator. It shows 125 calories for 4 oz. and 20 calories for 0.25 pound, which is the same amount. - 1/9/12

    AWESOME! This was the best meal I have made since I started cooking at home again. Aaaaand it was the first time my husband actually ate some of my food since I have been cooking low calorie foods. All I changed was I added 1/2 c water durring the simmer. And thats saying alot for me. - 1/16/09

    I made this for my parents and I, and we all really enjoyed it! I also added a couple tablespoons of vinegar, but not the extra water. The consistency was great. Served it with veggies and brown rice. Yum! - 8/15/07

    If there were 10 stars, this would get 10! Absolutely delicious. I will make it again. I heard that genuine sweet and sour is equal parts catsup, sugar and vinegar, so added 3 Tablespoons of catsup. (adds a bit more carbs, but turned out better than eating out! Thank you HappyWalker!!! - 9/8/10

    This was very good, but it called for vinegar in the directions but never said how much. I used 2 tbs and it was good that way. - 8/2/07

    Missing ingredient: no vinegar in the ingredients list, but it calls for vinegar in the directions, so I just added a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Also, this recipe needs about 3/4 cup of water to add, or the mixture thickens way too much during the final cooking. Tasty overall. - 6/22/07

  • This was good- and easy. I used fresh garlic. The sauce didn't get to the consistency I wanted- it stayed kind of thin. This could get better with some tweaking, but good enough for a weeknight dinner as is! - 2/27/12
