    the instructions could be better written, but the end result was great, despite my over-cooking the broccoli.

    Turned out great! I seasoned the chicken with salt, cracked pepper, turmeric, smoked paprika, curry, ground coriander and garam masala. It was delicious!

    Very good. I replaced water with chicken broth for more flavor and cut the honey in half as I didn't want it to be too sweet.

    Very good. I reduced the honey and added an extra tablespoon of hoisin and soy sauce. I used chicken stock instead of water. Solid recipe.

    It came out a little sweet even after reducing the honey to half. I will try it again with only 2 tablespoons of honey instead of 6.

    I’m sorry but I thought this dish was horrible and so did my family. It’s way too sweet and doesn’t taste anything like Chinese chicken and broccoli

    Compared to many recipes I have tried to get the "Chinese take-out" taste, this one is the best! I did use a slightly different cooking technique, by keeping everything in the wok. I cooked the chicken first, and sautéed the broccoli over the finished chicken near the end. I also added sliced carrots. I did not need the 6 T of water because of the juices from the cooked chicken. I would definitely make this again. Delicious!!

    Asian style food is one of my family’s favorite cuisine. This dish was easy to make and tastes just as good as our local Chinese Food take out restaurant. I didn’t have hoisin sauce, so the tip to substitute with oyster sauce was great. The flavors were perfect! I didn’t quite use 6 tbs of honey...used about 4. Subtle sweetness! I always pre-season any meat that I cook, so I used an Asian flavor inspired “seasoning mix” along with my pantry/meat seasoning staples; garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt and pepper. The dish was phenomenal. Only problem is that I didn’t make enough!! Will definitely add this recipe to our family favorites!

    It was delicious. I made it with Chicken Breast and it still came out pretty good! Thighs for sure will make it tastier though.

    Seasoned chicken with garlic & ginger. Added carrots & mushrooms and seasoned with fajita seasoning & garlic & more ginger. Decreased honey to 3 tbsp. Added 3 tbsp of hot water, then added 2 tsp cornstarch in 1/2 cup hot water to make more of a sauce. Didn’t have fresh ginger, so used ground. Did veggies by eye.
