  • I made more sauce by using 2 cups fat free chicken broth with 2 Tbsp. cornstarch. This went better on the brown rice. I added two small sliced zucchini for extra veggies. Also I left out the ginger as that is a flavor our family does not care for in this dish. - 3/3/10

  • The marinade/sauce is too sour and too salty. My kids ate it, but they didn't really like it. - 1/5/08
