"Loved it."

"Very yummy and full of flavour! I switched up the veggies a bit to our liking :)"

"Really tasty, kids loved it, agree adding broccoli or snap peas & julienne onions would add color & taste. Sauce was too thick but that might've been due to using 20 oz of a whole pineapple. Had no idea how much juice might be in a can for this substitution so poured pineapple juice into the cornstarch to the consistency I thought it should be. Next time I'll know to use more juice. I also crushed a garlic clove instead of garlic salt. As a result of my 'from scratch' ingredients, 25 min prep was way too short. Used an electric wok & cook time alone was 15 minutes. No way 1.5lbs cubed chicken (3 large breasts) can be done in 5-6 min."
