    Pretty good! After tasting sautéed sauce I added more honey and a tad bit of sugar because it was really salty (I didn’t even add the extra suggested salt) Also added cornstarch to thicken.

    Loved this! We’ve begun to double the ingredients for the sauce just so we have more sauce for rice, but the taste is so so yummy.

    This was a hit! I did it in the crockpot. Only thing was, as others mentioned, the sauce wouldn’t thicken, even after 30 min so I added a tsp of coconut flour as someone else suggested and it immediately thickened. So good!

    It was delicious! I added a little chicken broth and orange juice just to give it some more liquid because I was worried it wouldn't be enough but it probably would have been fine without it!

    It came out pretty good!! I did not add the salt because it was salty enough with the coconut aminos and I added a few drops of sesame oil. Mine didn’t get to the syrup texture but the flavor was so good that it didn’t matter. My family loved it and will make again.

    I’m new at Instant Pot cooking but this was delicious! I made some rice and broccoli to go with it and all 5 of us loved it... which is a miracle on its own!!

    Good, but my sauce didn’t thicken hardly at all after 10 minutes of sautéing.

    Not sure what I did wrong, but this was EXTREMELY salty. Threw it out.

    Very good! I made with Tamari and was delicious.

    I love this recipe - it goes together very quickly and has a great flavor! Sautéing the sauce at the end is worth the extra minutes but the chicken tastes great without the sauce too! I will make again!

    I followed the recipe exactly. The sauce never really thickened so I added some corn starch and that did the trick. Super yummy! I’ll double the recipe next time. The recipe only made enough for about 3, maybe 4 people.

    Great and easy! I did use chicken breasts because that’s what I had in the fridge and it was definitely dry but edible due to great taste of the ingredients.

    Excellent! I followed instructions exactly. I would rather eat this recipe than order take out any day.

    Super easy to make, I added beans and peppers at the end, took the chicken out and cooked them in the sauce for 2 minutes.

    super easy in the instant pot. we withheld the sesame and garlic due to allergies, I added onion powder instead, and it was still fabulous. we will make this again!!

    Delicious. Didn’t use salt based off the other reviews. It’s still pretty salty. Used Braggs liquid aminos vice coconut aminos.

    It tasted pretty good
    Christine 10 months ago
    This was an excellent dish. I used low sodium soy sauce instead of the aminos. I also did not add the ginger (Hubby hates it) nor did I add the salt. The dish was not too salty at all. I added sautéed broccoli back in the sauce when I put the meat back in and stirred it all together. I served over cauliflower rice. Absolutely incredible. Next time, I may increase the honey and the soy sauce so I can get more sauce after it’s reduced. Carrots and mushrooms would be a good addition as well as red pepper flakes for a touch of spice. The point is the dish is great as is or you can make many variations from it.

    This was delicious! The hardest part was cutting all the fat off the chicken. Will definitely make it again! Thanks!

    Very good but sauté didn’t help thicken enough, I added a thickener. It was wonderful then! We ate with a broccoli slaw and quinoa (rice allergies). Perfect fast dinner and would freeze very well!
