    This is a very good recipe, but it would be more politically correct to rename it Asian rather than Oriental. I'm sure no offense was ever meant.

    I made this and it is delicious!! I will be making it again. It is alittle time consuming, but well worth it. My whole family likes it too and they love Chinese food.

    My family and I LOVE this dish. As a variation I had cooked the chicken on the grill instead of frying in oil and did not add the sugar.

    Fall-apart tender chicken in a slightly spicy oriental sauce. Who needs a Chinese resaurant? My family loved this!
