    I modified the recipe a bit for who I cook for; the chicken thighs are tender and perfect for the recipe. Just the right amount of kick!  -  21 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really really loved this dish! Made exactly as directed first time, no changes. SOOO good, everyone liked it. 5 stars. Didn't find too hot or too sweet...just perfect. Second time I wanted more healthy veggies, so I used sweet potatoes and added a cup of corn. Even better the second time! Six stars haha.  -  29 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We really enjoyed the sweet spicy sauce with the chicken and veggies, but after a while we found ourselves looking for some variety. It needs a bright acidic side or salad to provide balance and a break from the heavy richness  -  22 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
