  1. 5 stars
    seems to make enough sauce for twice the amount of chicken, but maybe i just measured wrong. tastes amazing though, next time im gonna add some lemon cause im obsessed with lemon ^^

  2. Delicious.
    I changed a couple of ingredients to make the dish a wee bit healthier:
    I used coconut Sugar instead Brown sugar)
    and tapioca flour (also called tapioca starch)
    instead of corn starch
