Seriously meh. I made this for my husband and I for dinner; we are always looking for quick, healthy meals with different flavors. When I mixed up the sauce it tasted very bland; deciding maybe I just hadn't given it a proper chance. So on a second attempt I reviewed other readers' suggestions and added ginger, hot sauce, and toasted sesame oil. These additions definitely improved the flavor, but then they masked the coconut and lime enough that it might as well not have been there. We ate the salad both times, but have agreed that while it was edible, it wasn't the taste explosion we were looking for. Pros: Easy Cons: Not exciting.
Good, but needs a little extra something I added 1 Tbsp of toasted sesame oil, 1/2 tsp chili sauce, and about 2 tsp grated fresh ginger to the sauce. I sliced the chicken first and let it marinade in the sauce in the glass pan (minus the reserve) for about 1 hour before cooking it. Other than that I followed the directions and it was delicious! Will definitely make this again. Pros: Great base recipe Cons: the sauce needs some help
Good, but not great. The various flavors didn't seem to meld. One bite tasted of cilantro, another tasted of coconut, another of cabbage, etc. I normally avoid adding salt to my food, but this time I felt it was necessary to do so.
Loved this sauce.
I made this salad for my husband and I and we both hated it. The chicken came out really dry and I had to add salt and pepper to it just to choke it down. I won't be keeping this recipe.
