    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

    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

    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

    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
