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 ...

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 ...

Wonderful recipe! I tweaked the apricot and pineapple amounts based on what I had (more pineapple than apricots) and it was still wicked good. Added some fresh garlic to the ginger, and put some...

Delicious sauce and chicken! Instead of frozen veggies, I used fresh bell and sweet peppers, broccoli, zucchini, and tomato and it turned out great.

Wonderful recipe. I've made this a couple of times now and the whole family enjoys the flavour. The only reason this is 4 stars rather than 5 is because the sauce does need to be thickened.
