My entire family like this dish, two of them are the pickyest of eaters. I did make a few changes based on the fact I wanted a dish more like at the food court and I didn't have all ingredients on had. To start with I used 1/2 inch pieces of chicken to decrease cooking time. Before browning the chicken I tossed the pieces in a 50/50 mixture of corn starch and AP flour. You do need a bit more oil when browning,(u used veg oil with a couple tbs of sesame oil to add that real oriental flavor) I did it in three seperate batches so as not to crowd my pot. You'll have some nice brown bits on the bottom to add to the flavor of your sauce. Instead of the fruit juice I used juice from one can of fruit coctail and another can of peaches and about 1/2 cup of grape jelly. I put in 4 diced scallions for added onion flavor. I also used dark brown sugar and a full tsp of ginger and 2 tbs of serachi sauce. Make sure to scape the bottom to get those browned bits up that will help thicken your sauce(you will still need to corn starch to thicken a bit). I seved with home made fried rice....will be making this agian.
