"Super easy recipe. Using instant rice, dinner can be on the table in 15 minutes. A little too mild. It does need more soy sauce. Next time, think I'll try adding some ginger, and maybe some pineapple. Definitely a keeper."

"This is a family favorite! My picky 7 year old loves it, my 15 month old does too, & my husband wants me to make it every week. The honey gives it a nice sweet flavor. I double the sauce & make angel hair pasta and mixed it all together, DELICIOUS!!! Super quick to make too."

"The honey absorbed the soy sauce flavor and came off tasting bland to me. Won't make again"

"This tasted good and went together quickly. I did double the sauce and next time, I will probably add some red pepper flakes because I would like it to have a bit of a kick."

"I had no low sodium soya sauce so only used 1 tbsp regular soya sauce and no salt. I used fresh veggies, added 1/4 tsp of dried red hot pepper flakes.I will double the sauce next time."
