MY REVIEW

Simple meal to prepare. It could use some more flavor. I used a sweet yellow pepper instead and a can of chunk pineapple. I let the chicken marinade in some of the sauce before cooking. Served over jasmine rice.

Next time I plan to add celery and water chestnuts for a nice crunch. No need to cook chicken first and then remove. I just did it all together in one pan. Saved time and dishes!

MY REVIEW

We really enjoyed it, but I wonder if fresh ginger would make it even tastier. I also like the suggestion of garlic!

MY REVIEW

I made this tonight and was very disappointed because it had no flavor. Is there an ingredient missing from the list?
