MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2014

We liked this after I played with the sauce some, I added more ketchup because the soy sauce was a little over powering.

I thought this was very good, I was just not overly impressed. Simple to put together.

YUM!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 2, 2012

These were okay. The idea is a good one, but the sauce had a bitterness to it that we didn't like, which I think was due to the soy sauce. There was also a lot of sauce to throw away....wasted ingredients. We may like them better with a sauce that doesn't have the soy in it. I love soy sauce in many things, but not in this case.

Sliced mushrooms and sliced water chestnuts are an excellant edition to this recipe. Just add when the liquid ingredients are added to the chicken.
