    Very good! I thickened a hit with cornstarch as some suggested & it was good. Next time I might add a bit more pineapple. It's a keeper.

    Fresh and sweet, this recipe makes for a great, light dinner. The dish is really easy to make and very family friendly with its mild flavors.

    Love the simplicity! The sauce needs a little more 'zing' - I thickened it, and next time will probably add a little black or red pepper to liven it up.

    I've been making this recipe for years and it's one of my all-time favorite recipes. I skip the chicken but I'm sure is delish with it!!

    Very easy to make and very tasty. The sauce could have had a little more flavor though. I ended up adding some more soy sauce to my individual serving. I will thicken the sauce next time with some water and cornstarch. Would definitely make again!

    The sauce does not have much flavor.

    Very tasty - the sauce was not overly sweet. Just the way I like it! Threw in some peanuts for a little extra crunch and served over brown rice.

    I enjoyed the flavor of this recipe. The only thing I added was some corn starch and water to thicken up the sauce.
