      This was GREAT! However, DO add 1/4 tsp onion powder and 1/8 tsp of garlic powder to the sauce. Other reviewers said they thought that something was missing and I think that was it. Thank you so much for this recipe, I've tried other highly rated chinese recipes from this site with huge disappointment. This was delicious and my kids and DH actually ate it all!

      This was an excellent dish but i would make a few changes the next time i make this.. which is why i gave it 4 stars, instead of 5.
      i substituted half honey and half sugar for the sugar completely, but next time i will substitute all of honey for the sugar. Also, 2 tbsp of sesame oil was alot.. so next time i will only use 1 tbsp.
      The marinade was enough for only 2 breast pieces, but there was enough gravy for 3 breast pieces. So i'll be increasing the marinade to be enough for 3 pieces. i didnt have any chilli paste on hand so used chilli sauce instead.
      Thanks for the recipe Princess! This will be made often in our house!!
