I'm not worried about the vodka because the alcohol cooks out. I'm sure there's a substitute for those morally opposed to alcohol. I made this tonight and it rocks, my picky family ate it all up. It's a lower calorie substitute for fast food fried chines chicken dishes. It will replace our take out! - 11/11/08
This recipe is great! I used 2 chicken breasts instead of thighs and crushed red pepper instead of chili pepper. I think I will make more of the glaze sauce next time, it was tasty! Don't worry about the vodka, it's like making an orange/ginger extract and it cooks off. Way better than Panda! :D - 8/11/09
