  • ½ cups Low Sodium Soy Sauce

Two pounds of chicken would be fine. I liked it, but kids didn’t and husband wasn’t a big fan. Not as sticky as the food court kind, but I liked the flavor.

Yummy! Sweet with a nice burn (a little spicy for my kids) but I agree– a lot of sauce, so I will likely add more chicken next time. Boneless skinless thighs were perfect.

We loved this recipe. I used chicken breast and omitted the red pepper but added ginger. Absolutely delish!!

Delicious & easy! Next time tho I will do what some of the other users recommended. I followed recipe with 1lb chicken, and had so much sauce left over. Next time I think I will do 2lb.
