    Fantastic! I added a few tablespoons of water with lots of oranges pieces and it turned out perfect. - 4/13/11

    I was going to try and just get through the diet without really using recipes but it is just too blah. This dish is fantastic and tastes as good or better than I get at the chinese place. Thanks for sharing. - 3/19/11

  • This is an excellent recipe. I have made it twice now in the last two weeks. I added spinach to the mix in order to get in the veggies. Once on normal eating, I may add toasted almonds. - 2/23/14

  • Just excellent - it is difficult to make interesting and scrummy meals with the limited ingredients on hcg protocol but this is just like any ordinary meal....very clever, thank you. - 9/23/12

  • I enjoyed this as well. However, I made it with 200 grams of chicken. This is a keeper long after my P2 period is done! - 7/10/12

  • Abolutely Amazing. So easy. I also added water and made the broth. I then added the chicken and cooked slowly. This really added a change for my VLCD. - 5/7/12

  • So delicious! I modified it a bit. (It was pouring rain and I didnt feel like going to store for Ginger Root and Basil leaves) I used ground ginger and dried basil from the spice drawer. I also used pre-cooked chicken to make it more quickly. I allowed the citrus juices to caramelize a bit! YUM!!! - 11/28/11

  • Makes the HCG diet more bearable with delicious recipes like this. I served over steamed broccoli. - 9/25/11

  • I just made this recipe for lunch. I only used 1 clove of garlic, any more would've been too much for me! I did cook for 16 mins and that could've been shortened some. I'm on Day 12 of P1 and have been happy with the recipes that came with my kit. Sometimes a little slow but doing OK. - 8/20/11

  • I must have overcooked mine, because it was very bitter and the chicken was extremely dry. My kids pulled horrible faces through the whole meal. I will have to try this one again just for me, and maybe it will turn out better... - 4/2/11
