    This is one of our favorite recipes. We cut the chicken into smaller cubes and double the sauce however. We like a little extra sauce to drizzle over the rice. So yummy!

    This reminded me a lot of the honey chicken my husband and I order at our favorite Chinese restaurant. I think next time I make this, I'll cut the chicken into smaller pieces and serve it over rice. Delish!

    I served this dish over rice with a side dish of broccoli. The only change I would make is to have more of the sauce to go over the rice.

    We like this recipe very much. I use lemon juice if I don't have limes.

    Great recipe, the only thing I would do differently next time is add some veggies to the mixture (eg snow peas, carrots...)
