I am just beginning to start cooking and found this recipe to be pretty helpful. HOWEVER! I changed up the recipe a bit. Instead of battering and frying the chicken, I used frozen chicken nuggets. (The breading helps the sauce stick to the chicken) As far as the sauce goes, I recomend using 3/4 cup of sugar, otherwise it's way too sweet. I also don't normally have chile paste lying around so I substituted the chile paste with a little less than a teaspoon of Masaman Curry Paste. (It comes in a blue container, I don't remember where it's from. The label said "Bright") Make sure all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed before you add the cornstarch that's dissolved in water. Then when the sauce and chicken are both done cooking, put all the chicken in a large bowl, pour the sauce on top of them and stir gently with a wooden spoon until all the chicken is covered with sauce.
This recipe is best served over white or fried rice with a side of egg drop soup. :) I made it for my boyfriend, who's a picky eater, and he liked it a lot. It makes for a really good, relatively cheap dinner. (as compared to the price of take out)
