      I really likes this. My DH and girls likes it too. I thought there was a little bit too much of a ketchup taste for me, but it was still really good. Next time I won't add as much ketchup and more soy around with it some. Thanks!!

      This was an instant hit. The chicken turned out moist and tender. I also noticed a rather strong ketchup taste, but I used some fresh pureed chili pepper in place of a small amount of the ketchup and I added extra ginger (dried since I didn't have time to mince more fresh) at the end to conceal it.

      I LOVE this recipe. It is exactly like the one I learned how to make in High School. I had lost the recipe years ago and have missed it dearly. I did double the sauce (thinking ahead) so I could cook up some Spatzle noodles to change it up a little for another night's dinner. This will be made again and again! Even my picky husband loved it! Thanks for posting!
