Very good. Sauce is very good. Like another reader this, in my opinion, is more like a sweet and sour sauce (with a twist) due to the use of pineapple juice. Used rice vinegar and half flour and half cornstarch to dredge the chicken in. I will make this again but still searching for a General Tso's recipe I think I'm looking for something with a bit of orange in it.

Very good. I think I would've slowly added the cornstarch and water at the end to thicken. My dish went pretty thick quickly.

The recipe was missing a few instructions. I just tried to fill in the gaps the best I could. I also used rice vinegar instead of regular vinegar. A triumph!

Turned out really really well. We used rice vinegar so it wasn't over powering. We used red pepper flake instead of the dried peppers, and added some sesame seeds. Very good will make again.

Easy to make and the kids loved it. They fought over the last piece. I served it on noodles and it was great. It will be one of our go to meals.

Very good, I didn't use peppers because of the kids which may have been why I can taste the vinegar. Added just a little red pepper flakes to help offset. I will def make again but use a little less vinegar. Overall, very good.

Recipe is missing text in the ingredients. Towards the bottom it says 2 tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with 3. 3 what? Also at the bottom it says three green onions cut into 1/4. 1/4 what?

It was good but the batter needed to be doubled and it didn't do a good job of frying the chicken. The batter seemed to drip off the chicken too much.

I like it a lot. But next time I will probably change the breading and try to make it crispier.

I turned it into a stirfry served over chowmein noodles and it turned out superb. The sauce is an excellent sauce to use for any type of stirfry, especially with chillies added.
