    It was a little too acidic for us, between the tomato paste AND the rice vinegar. I'd probably omit the tomato paste next time.

    I used half the tomato paste and substituted it for an equal amount of very dry sherry. I also added some fresh ginger. It came out fine! I also used the instant pot method where you cook the chicken in the sauce for 15 minutes instead of slow cooking all day. I was happy with it!

    It smelled amazing while cooking but unfortunately my husband and I didn’t really like the flavor.

    Yummy! We made it with a lb of chicken and the recommended amount of sauce, and it was perfect over rice.

    Next time I'll make it saucier... otherwise delicious.

    Moist but not enough flavor

    Wow. This is absolutely delicious - it tastes like a lot more work goes into it than really does. The mix of sweet to spicy is just right (though if you have kids who are spice sensitive, it's probably better to skip the Sriracha). My oldest took one bite, widened his eyes and said "You have to keep this recipe!" My middle one, who is spice sensitive, said it was really good but had a bit too much kick for him - but said to make it again, just without the sriracha. Definitely a winner, will make this often!

    Love this recipe. Have made it over a dozen times. I serve it over brown rice with a salad. A big hit.
