This was a little fussy to make, but tasty. Husband really liked it and "would have again" --

Delicious! I made this exactly as written and served it over white rice with chicken egg rolls on the side.

Very good taste!! My whole family loved it and told me to make it a "keeper." I used McCormick Perfect Pinch Caribbean Jerk seasoning because I didn't have Cajun seasoning, and added fresh cubed pineapple when I added the sauce. Yummy!

Pretty good. I would probably add some broccoli if I made it again.

A hit with my family! I've made it twice and on the second time, I didn't add as much brown sugar so I added a drained can of pineapple chunks. WOW!! Delish

Made this tonight with turkey strips.... and it was SO yum! The sauce was just the right mix of tangy/salty/sweet.

Great recipe. The only variation I did was kick it up a notch. Instead of cooking the chicken in oil, I use a szechuan stir fry sauce. Very tasty, if you like it spicy.
