"I double the recipe, used orange-mango juice. Didn't have fresh ginger so used ground ginger. Was a hit with my diabetic Mom, asian food loving husband & myself. Always looking for new ways to fix chicken so will make this again!"

"I am going to make this for a potluck lunch because it sounds so good and so easy. Is it good warmed over if you wish to reheat it?"
