I am 12 years old and I love to cook. I was looking for a chicken recipe to make for my family because I was tired of the same ole stuff ya know?? Well this recipe turned out GREAT!! Even my Dad liked it and he hardly likes anything. This was a real hit. I will definately make this again. Also it was really good served with white rice.:) Thanks for the recipe!!
This was pretty good. I scaled the recipe down for two people, but ended up needing to make enough sauce for four people in order to have enough to simmer. Next time I make it, I'll probably substitute Worchestershire sauce for the soy sauce, which will essentially make it a BBQ chicken recipe.
This was wonderful. I will make this again. As recommended by other reviewers, I doubled the sauce, and I only added 1/2 tsp of pepper. I also cooked it for about 40 minutes, and I disolved a spoonful of corn starch in about 1/3 cup of cold water and added right at the end of cooking. This made a nice thick sauce. I made rice and broccoli as recommended. After dinner, I just put all the leftovers, (chicken, sauce, rice, and broccoli) in one bowl and brought it for lunch today. It was really good all mixed up too! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Doubled the sauce quantity - my family loves plenty of sauce with anything for dinner.
This was very good, but nothing exceptional. I took others' advise and tripled the sauce without tripling everything, and I'm glad that I did. 9 Tbs. ketchup, 6 Tbs. soy sauce, 5 1/2 Tbs. white sugar, 6 Tbs. lemon juice, 1 1/2 tsp black pepper. This was perfect. Not too sweet and not too hot. The reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because serving this dish with rice is a must and should have been included that way. The recipe should have at least doubled the sauce, as well. I also cubed my chicken because it looked so tasty in the photos that way. I think my changes are what made this dish a success. Overall, served over rice with brocolli and a nice loaf of French bread, this meal was a hit with my family.
Excellent! I tripled the sauce recipe, and it was perfect. I did, however, when tripling the sauce, cut the sugar by a third (6 tbl instead of 9) and added a handful of sliced mushrooms at the end. This is fast, easy, and delicious. I served with white rice and broccoli. Will make mashed potatoes next time. Thanks for the comfort food!
Well we liked that one! I didn't put the sugar in at all because we don't like sauces to be too sweet. Only wish there was more sauce...it all seems to reduce too much so next time I will make more sauce for it. Thumbs up!
I named this Sweet & Zesty Chicken. I followed the suggestion of other reviewers and made more sauce than suggested because we love sauce on our rice. I did 1/2 c + 1 Tbs. ketchup, 1/4c + 2Tbs. soy sauce. 1/4c sugar, 1/4 + 2Tbs vinegar because I didn't have lemon juice. Other than that i followed it exactly and it came out GREAT!! i'll definitely be saving this one and tweaking it some more. I served it over Basmati rice!! SO GOOD!!!
