This is a good starter recipe. I added about 2 tbs of soy sauce and ginger to the sauce and added carrots. I also chopped the chicken into bite sized pieces. I would have added snap peas if I had them to really give this dish an Asian flair. Perfect to put over rice.

Too much vinegar! My husband hated the flavor. I thought it was ok. And my 3yr old daughter who loves chicken no matter what you do to it loved it! she ate most of it! She thought it was chicken with runny funny ketchup! And she loves ketchup! so one star is straight from my daughter! Maybe my husband and I just have too high of flavor palats!

This was pretty good. It didn't have the exact flavor that I thought it would. I wasn't sure what kind of vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar. Maybe white would have been better? Anyway, it's a good recipe to have on hand, and it was easy and quick, but I'll play with the spices a bit next time.

This is a great recipe. I did not make rice. I served it with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted red pepper. I also added minced onion to the sauce (1/2 onion.) :)

Pretty good - my kids gobbled this up, always a good thing! I seasoned the chicken first with coriander, cumin, garlic, pepper and a bit of salt. I also used tomato sauce instead of soup (I never have tomato soup), and it came out quite nice. The sauce also goes over sauteed peppers quite well too. Thanks for a recipe I will use again.

I absolutely loved how easy this is to make. I live in a house of men who want there food now! It really only took about 30 mins to make. I added a little more brown sugar than it called for cause I wanted it more sweet. It wen't really well with the rice. Everyone loved it.

Unique and very easy. I made the recipe exactly as it stands other than sprinkling a bit of cayenne to spice it up. We enjoyed it.
