This was wonderful!! Will definitely make again. The only issue I had was that the sauce was not as thick as I had expected. Perhaps I might use a tiny bit more cornstarch next time. Also, I cut the chicken into smaller pieces. But this was wonderful. Fabulous flavor. Thank you

Great easy recipe! I also added the juice from the pineapple to the sauce mixture and doubled the other ingredients in the sauce mixture to compensate for the extra juice. It turned out well as I didn't want to waste the pineapple juice. I served it over rice. Loved it! Will definitely make it again!

This is my recipe, so of course, I love it! Spiciness can be increased by adding more crushed red pepper and the chicken should be cut into about 1-1/2" x 1/2" strips (chunks). You can also use fresh veggies or pork for this recipe. Have fun!
