    Just as good as the more authentic kind I make. My kids loved it. I used fresh ginger and garlic. Will not use the red pepper flakes next time as too hot. Will use more ginger. Great subsitute for the restaurant variety. Grilled chicken on grill. Made sauce separate and put over top when serve - 8/2/09

    This really solved my problem regarding what to make last night. It turned out delicious. The only things I changed were to use 2 Tbsp of honey and no sugar and I added a handful of raw cashew nuts at the end. - 7/30/09

    This was really good and very easy to make. I mixed everything but the chicken, broccoli and rice to make sure the cornstarch didn't clump and it turned out great. - 2/15/09
