    Honestly thought it was a bit bland... I saved it by adding lots of spices :)

    Substitute vegetable oil for groundnut oil and add green beans! Serve with black rice.

    It was a great taste. My family and I love onions and sauce so we added another half of all ingredients except chicken. Also, my wife has a shellfish allergy so I added Worcestershire instead of fish sauce.

    Quick and tasty but I would chop the onions larger and the meat pieces, used turkey breast this time, smaller.
    So delicious and super easy & quick to prepare.

    A total winner. We added extra basil and used Garlic Chili Sauce instead of Sriracha. Yum!

    A+. Flavor was spot on, very easy prep and quick cook time. One pot dinner with some rice and all set. Will definitely make again for a weeknight meal.

    This was amazing!! Definitely needs more sauce, I’ll make more next time! It also wasn’t as red as the picture, so I’m not sure where I went wrong there! But nonetheless, super delicious!!

    Love this recipe! I had some veggies in the fridge I needed to use up (green beans, serranos and red bell pepper) so I added them and doubled the soy sauce, brown sugar and fish sauce. Definitely a new favorite of ours and will definitely make this again and again!

    Tasty! Loved it. I added dry Thai chilli flakes to boost up the spiciness and it takes great!

    This is a keeper for sure it is so good and so easy! I get it with chicken thighs instead of breath though.

    We all really enjoyed this one - even my very fussy, autistic stepson. However, the smell while cooking was very unpleasant. Needless to say, the final result was a pleasant surprise!

    I doubled the sauce recipe but wish I made more! I also cut back on the red pepper flakes and didn’t use the sriracha sauce. It turned out delicious!
