    It is a nice recipe for those of us who like sweet and sour dishes. Very easy. It took only 30 minutes in all as I made just one serving.  -  26 Feb 2010


    I followed this recipe exactly and it was delicious. The relatively long cooking time meant that the meat was really tender and the sauce made it really flavoursome. It was really easy to prepare, just 5 minutes then bung in the oven. Thanks!  -  19 Apr 2010
