    Altered ingredient amounts. Needs twice the sauce for best flavour and to coat the chicken and broccoli sufficiently. Add some peanuts or cashews for crunch. Also good with basmati rice.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. We thought it was a great recipe! I made some alterations: we marinated the chicken in soy sauce/garlic/ginger/splenda, I also made extra sauce, adding a bit more hoisin sauce and added some splenda to the recipe to make it a bit more sweet to ward of some of the heat from the spices. I skipped out on the salt in the recipe... I found that this recipe was already on the salty side, so I also used low-sodium chicken stock. This is now a family favourite! It's also great with sticky rice.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. This was good. I used a chilli garlic sauce aproximately 1 tablespoon and used fresh minced ginger approximately 1 tablespoon. I also added a lot more veggies: edamame, baby carrots, bok choy, red capsicumand the broccoli. I seasoned my chickend with garlic and season salt and ommitted the reg salt that was called for. This was great but VERY spicy. Next time I will reduce the amount of chilli garlic sauce that I use and perhap will add a little sugar. I doubled my sauce and added all of the ingredients (soy, stock, hoisin -- to taste.)  -  29 Sep 2008
