"Very tasty. My meat was a little dry, but that was because I cooked it in the oven; next time I might boil it."

"This recipe was so easy to make and tasted great! I served the chicken on Hawaiian rolls, which my husband and I really enjoyed. I will definitely be making these sandwiches again!"

"The sauce is very tasty and not overpowering at all. Next time I make it I want the sauce to be thicker so it sticks to the chicken. I'll probably add a corn starch mixture at the end. I WILL be making this again."
