Fantastic recipe, we all loved it, even my 5 year old exclaimed, "I pronounce this dinner delicious!" :) What helped me during cooking: *Unlike other commenters, I did not find this took long to cook at all. All up it was 40 minutes start to finish. ** I had trouble thickening the sauce. I had just enough cornstarch, so couldn't add more, so I used a thickening trick from making gravy. When I sauteed veggies (bell pepper, carrot, onion) to add to the sauce I threw a handful, maybe 1/3 cup, of regular flour over them at the last minute. I brought the whole thing to a boil again after adding the veggies. *** I do not have a thermometer for oil, so I had no idea what temp to turn my stove to. On MY stove, the right temp for this turned out to be MEDIUM. I started at med-high and it was too hot. I went just below medium for about half the time and halfway through turned it up to just above medium to keep the temperature constant. Each piece of chicken (about 1"X1"X0.5") took only approx. 2 minues per side.
***That's it! I think beyond that everyone's tastes are slightly different. I added veggies, and a bit of ketchup to the sauce, and spiced the chicken before battering; but none of that is necessary. This is still a great recipe with or without accessories.
