"Bland and boring. Needs onion or peppers or something."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 25, 2011

"I really liked this and it was simple and easy to make. I cut my chicken up in pieces instead of leaving the breasts whole. My small children wouldn't touch it -- apparently they don't like teriyaki -- but that is their loss."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 11, 2011

"I added mango and thought it was tatsy, but everyone said needs about three times the sauce to accomodate the rice."
