It tasted very good! I would make it again. The only thing that I will say is that it shouldn’t be under the “Easy Recipes” category. To julienne the carrots alone, it takes about 15 minutes.

quick and easy yo make. better yet, I made this for my girlfriend and she loved it!
It was great.. my family loved it. I added more soy sauce then recipe called for plus I added broccoli. It was quick to make. Will definitely make again.
Easy to make and tasty. I read the reviews prior to cooking and decided to increase the sauce. I tripled the sauce ingredients including the corn starch but next time will triple the sauce and only double the corn starch. It was a great amount of sauce to meat/vegetable ratio but just a little too thick. It was SO easy to make. We added broccoli to the dish. I used extra ginger and hubby liked the sweet heat.

Simple & tasty. But be sure not to use too much ginger, so it does not overpower the other flavours.
Fantastic !! Fast and tasty next time I would double the sauce because I like more fluid

Awesome recipe!! I used broccoli instead of carrots and it was delicious, definitely rivaled Chinese takeout
Was very delicious! Might scale back the honey next time for a less sweet sauce.
Loved how easy this was. And only one pot! I bought the 90 sec. microwave rice for even more convenience! Was told to make it again so it will be added to my rotation!

Pretty good for a one pot meal!

Quick, easy and tasty. The flavours didn't blow my mind but it was yummy and very easy so I'll definitely make it again for an easy dinner. Next time I'll make more sauce though as I served it with rice and it wasn't really saucy enough to coat the rice. Oh also I added baby sweetcorn, celery and snow peas.

Great! Hard to believe it was healthy! Family loved it and will definitely make it again.
Great flavor! We may add water chestnuts next time.

Portions and taste perfect
My family loved the sauce, but i knocked off a star for the chicken breast. I can never get chicken breast to cook properly without it getting dry. Will definitely be using this recipe again except with chicken thighs next time.

Added a 1/2 tsp of ground red pepper, turned out well
Fab recipe. Next time I may add a little more chilli but, we both loved it!

Adding a bit of pepper and lemon juice does wonders
Rory 14 Apr
Nice I added extra chilli flakes for a kick and bulked up the veg. Was very tasty.
Double wet recipe to make more of the sauce
Hey Tim 13 Apr
Super quick and easy to make and very yummy!
The recipe was so easy to follow. It didn't take long to prep and cook which was great after a long day at work. AND SO DELICIOUS! Definitely making it again

I doubled the recipe to feed my family of four with hopes of some left over, and they ate it all, and were still hungry after! If the serving size is only a cup, you better have other side dishes to go with this. It tasted really good, though.
This was so easy and delicious! Next time I may add some red peppers strips and pea pods. The sauce was amazing.
