Quick, easy, and uses ingredients you probably have on hand.

"I made this recipe this past week and it was delicious! I doubled the recipe since I wanted to have leftovers for lunch the following day. After reading the reviews I decided to follow the advice given on some of the reviews to reduce soy sauce. For a double recipe I added 4 tbspns instead of 6 tbspns of soy sauce. I also added about 1/2 cup more of the pineapple juice and brown sugar to my taste. Everyone LOVED it!!!"

Will make again. Chicken very tender. Does not need vinegar, added tbs of brown sugar. Other reviews were right, sauce bland, added smoked paprika, onion powder, ginger powder and brags instead of soya sauce for depth of flavour. Also ate with franks red hot sauce

Less soysauce or add more pineapple juice. Used brown sugar instead of vinegar.

Was nice but sauce was bitter so I added brown sugar and instead of vinegar I used Japanese rice wine! I also added the pinapple to the sauce instead of the chicken as it took the coating of the chicken the last time!

Very easy and quick to fix! I followed the recipe, but doubled the sauce because I like a lot of extra sauce for my rice. My hubby and I loved it! Will definitely fix again.

I made this tonight. I used Garbanzo bean flour instead of regular flour. It came out great, I did have to salt the chicken before coating. I am going to pour this over rice. I did not add the cornstarch to the mixture, it was great without the added calories of the starch.
