I make this recipe all the time, my family loves it. The secret is good ingredients. Make sure you use the all the stuff they say, don't skimp on the garlic and remember the ginger would be better if fresh, its cheap and you can freeze it. Let the chicken marinate about 2 hrs before cooking it. My family likes spicy so not only do I add a little more red pepper flakes but I also add a dash of Chinese hot chili sauce. I usually saute a red and green pepper and one onion after the chicken(sometimes I use boneless pork cutlets) cooks a little. I serve it with Balsmati Rice and Pot Stickers.
