Very good! I doubled the sauce like most reviewers recommend. I also added 2 tsp minced fresh ginger with the garlic for stir frying the chicken.

I liked the honey in the sauce, but like others have said, I doubled or even tripled the sauce as it needed it. I added some ginger for some additional seasoning. Instead of using frozen vegie blend, I opted to use fresh broccoli, mushrooms and spring peas. I also put in some Oriental sesame seed dressing while cooking the chicken to flavor it. YUM!

This dish was easy for weeknight prep but I found it rather bland. Next time I would use fresh veggies instead of frozen and definitely double the sauce. I would probably add a dash of sriracha to kick up the flavor.

This was absolutely the best Stir Fry Recipe I've made thus far!!! I doubled the sauce and used 2-10.5oz bags of broccoli, cauliflower, snap peas, carrots, I made rice but it was better without it. My pickiest child even loved it. I will definitely keep this recipe for future.

Yes, definitely double or triple the sauce. Tastes good with 1.5 teaspoons ground ginger, and you don't need thecornstarch as the honey is thick enough. I used fresh thin baby carrots, home grown purple and green beans and small broccoli florets. Sprinkled with garlic powder. Served over jasmine rice. Hubby didn't complain - Win, Win!

This is a quick easy dinner, that's perfect for busy weeknights! The sauce was very tasty, although I did double the amount called for in the recipe.

Made this as one of my trying to eat healthier meals. It was very tasty. The honey and soy sauce combined to make a really good sauce. I will make this again. My husband wants to try it with shrimp.
