I gave it only 4 stars because my husband said three stars...and I said five! So...we compromised and did four. He, like the other reviewer mentioned, thought it was too sweet. I actually liked it! I don't think I'm much help here but it is, in fact, sweet. I served it over white rice...and cubed the chicken. That was the ONLY thing I did different. I did throw in a bit more soy sauce to help with the sweetness. Good stuff and will make it again...whether he wants me to or not. :)
Hi Sgronholz, did you serve it with white rice or would try it with any rice? Calorie conscience here.
I cubed the chicken breasts and used pineapple chunks instead of slices, then served the mixture over rice...yum! My husband thought the lime flavor was a bit on the strong side, so I'll tone it down a little the next time I make it; however, we both enjoyed it.
Absolutely wonderful!! I followed the recipe exactly....wouldn't change a thing!
