Very tasty and easy to make. I added some peppers to mine.

This was so good! I didn't have a lot of reserve marinade so I did add more juice and sugar to the bowl before making the glaze but I made no other changes. I'm going to try this with tofu
OK I added lot more chilies, a splash of fish sauce, and basil leaves with the suggested coriander to this recipe. But it turned up as the most authentic Thai taste I've ever cooked!

Yum! Would make again
too sweet would make it more spicy next time
The flavors balanced out evenly. The combination of sweet, to spicy, to salty was just right

Needed more sauce so I added a bit of fish sauce and oyster sauce as well as a splash of chicken broth sauce was great

Excellent! Marinated the chicken for nearly 8 hours, I couldn't find cilantro at local grocer so skipped it and forgot to get the pepper so instead sprinkled about red pepper flakes about 1/4tsp in the sauce while thickening. Spot on good. Will be adding this to my recipe box!

Recipe was great! Thank you! Wish I had marinaded the chicken a little longer (didn't have the full hour) Used maple syrup (2Tbs) in place of the brown sugar (personal preference). Added a bunch of Chinese green beans for more vegetables.

Love this recipe!!!!! Even the kids eat it. I make it a couple times a month. I use various not-so-spicy chilis, depending on what I can find and cut down on the black pepper as my family is a bit spice wimpy. Otherwise, I stick to the recipe provided.

A tasty quick recipe - I used quorn rather than chicken and it worked well. It added some crunchy veg too - but that's personal choice. I'm looking forward to playing around with some additional ingredients!

A little too sweet and the flavor combination is different but tasty nonetheless. I will definitely try another variation with less sugar and some more lime on top.

I marinated it for 24 hours as plans changed. But still amazing! I also didn't add the rice which was a personal preference.

this recipe was amazing and very tasty as well! however instead of using salt, should use fish sauce
