This worked out great with rice noodles. I substituted Hoisin Sauce for the ketchup in the sauce and the sweetness of that meant no need for the brown sugar. Added in a little rice vinegar to the sauce on the stove then mixed in the green onions and grated ginger to the sauce. Oh and added fresh cilantro and basil and squeezed lime juice on top. Read More

Lovely dish especially thanks for this recipe. Basically chicken tossed with sauce gives a fabulous taste. For more spicy you must use hot sauce and chili. Read More

This was an excellent dish. Easy to make and delicious. I was skeptical about the ketchup but it pulled the flavors together. I didn t have carrots on hand so I omitted those and I didn t have scallions so I used sweet onion instead. I ll make this dish again and might add some red pepper flakes. Read More
