  1. Tasty and easy to make! Instead of putting the broccoli in a steamer I used the steam tray of my rice cooker (because who isn't going to eat this without rice?) and cooked those two at the same time while the chicken was cooking in a separate pot. Instead of green onions I used a - Read more ...
  2. This was good and made for a nice dinner served over jasmine rice. I did improvise a bit by adding some red bell pepper and mushrooms that I needed to use up. I cooked the red bell pepper and mushrooms and steamed the broccoli early in the afternoon then just added them at the end - Read more ...
  3. Very good base recipe. I took other reviewers suggestions and marinated the chicken in soy sauce fresh ginger garlic and some hoisin sauce for about 1.5 hours. The chicken came out so tender that I think this is key if you have the time. I also didn't think there was enough sauce so I doubled - Read more ...
  4. This was really yummy. I made a few changes just to up the veggies in it. I added more broccoli a yellow pepper sliced celery and carrots. I probably tripled the sauce too. I served it over some basmati rice. It was a great healthy dinner. Thanks Amanda!

I also added a lot more veggies: edamame baby carrots bok choy red pepper and the broccoli. I seasoned my chickend with garlic and season salt and - Read more ...
  8. Needs twice the sauce for best flavor and to coat the chicken and broccoli sufficiently. Add some peanuts or cashews for crunch. Also good with basmati rice.
  9. We thought it was a great recipe! I made some alterations: we marinated the chicken in soy sauce/garlic/ginger/splenda, I also made extra sauce, adding a bit more hoisin sauce and added some splenda to the recipe to make it a bit more sweet to ward of some of the heat from the spices. I skipped - Read more ...
