Was glad I read the reviews first, otherwise dinner would have been wasted food. Made the sauce separately which made sense in order to thicken properly. Also allowed for taste test. As written, it is very salty and kinda of blah on flavor for us. I had cut back on hot sauce (1T on doubled recipe) as 4 year old was eating too. It was just a lot of strong flavors crashing into each other. I added a couple pinches of chinese 5-spice, another 1-2 T of honey to sweeten it up and 1-2T peanut butter. Viola! After lightly browning floured chicken (another necessity I feel), I added the very thick sauce, tossed to coat over the heat, and put over rice. I'm still stunned by the compliments from all including the grandson who normally just eats when he likes it or says I don't like it. Still used 4 large breasts cut up, and doubled sauce because I was putting over rice. 3 stars for the original recipe, as it is a good base...but, I would taste before coating your cooked chicken, so you can adjust if you want.
