    I quite liked it, hubby thought it had an odd taste. I think next time I’ll leave the soy & stock out. I left the ginger out cos I only realized once I started making it that I didn’t have any. I also used less water & more cornflour.

    This was ok. As mentioned by others, it is pretty runny so definitely need to increase the cornflour and reduce the water. I am not sure the flavour is quite what I was after. When on the chicken, the sauce complimented it nicely but just on the rice it wasn't the flavour I hoped it would be. This should not be rated as medium to make, it is very easy. I might make again but with some tweaks to the recipe.

    I really liked this. Be careful though, my ginger was pretty thick, I thought I love ginger, so used the full 3cm, but this made it quite spicy, it tasted like lemon & ginger chicken. I'll definitely make this again, just with a touch less ginger. 

    Also, I increased the cornflour as recommended by others, I think that's a must

  • What a delicious dish! After

    Submitted by HelenaCC on 12. April 2016 - 20:12.

    What a delicious dish! After reading some of the comments, I tweaked the quantities. I used about 50 grams of cornflour, 250 mls of water, the juice of 3 lemons, and a bit of extra sugar (all other ingredients as per recipe). There was still more than enough sauce for 600g of chicken. Dinner was on the table in under 30 minutes, and we felt like we were eating Chinese takeaway! This will be a regular in our household. Thanks

  • I think 500g of water way too

    I think 500g of water way too much, try half that and more cornflour

    Really yummy - but I too found the sauce very runny even after increasing cornflour and reducing water.

    Beautiful. Was a hit. I would have liked the sauce a bit thicker. I might try adding more cornflour to it. I also didnt have fresh ginger so used ground ginger. Thank you!

    This was lovey, a really nice flavour.  I didn't have fresh ginger so used ginger from my spice jar.  The sauce wasn't as thick as I was expecting.  Not sure if something went wrong or if it is supposed to be runny...
