This is really good, chicken was crispy. I would recommend using 5 tablespoons of sugar rather than 6 and a bit less lime juice. I would also use 2 chillies next time with the seeds in.... enjoy

Halved the recipe to make it for one, and I used a lot less sugar and plain flour because I didn’t have corn flour but this turned out beautifully. Will definitely be making this again

Used much less sugar, still got a lovely sticky sauce! Highly recommended.

Excellent, though I think you only need half as much soy sauce and sugar. Really delicious.

I made it but I used chicken breading mix bc i ran out of corn starch. I think I used too much oil and made it really really spicy. I used a large lemon in place of a lime. It was cute but I forgot to wear disposable gloves while chopping the peppers. My face burned for a while and so did my habds but beyond that all was fine, I guess.
it was nice. i think next time i will cook brocolli separate and would half the sauce mixture.

Very tasty. Chicken didn’t go golden, I should of added more cornflour. Not too spicy, just right.

Wow! I’m that amazed I’m leaving a review! Dish was outstanding, I even had to nip to my parents house with the leftovers in the wok to let them try it! Don’t get a Chinese takeaway anymore, cook this!

Pretty good cooked the chicken a bit longer than should of so made it a little chewy but was really good and so easy!!
Great, really easy to make and quick use quorn instead of chicken
Best recipe so far, who would have thought corn flour would give the chicken such crunch!
Lovely meal but i had to do a few changes used chicken thighs instead for a better flavour and extra ginger and garlic. It took me around 2 hours to cook this meal.

Delicious. Prep and cook times both understated, should at least double, especially the prep.

Really lovely, used left over chicken and vegetables from Sunday roast. Turned out perfectly.
