I made this tonight for supper and it was a keeper! Very simple and very good. The only thing I did differently is I added some frozen peas to the rice after cooking and I used sugar free marmalade. It was great. Thanks for the recipe.

I made this tonight for our family and it was outstanding, 5 stars! I liked that the chicken didn't have additional breading.
After initially tasting the sauce, I added the following, just to kick up the flavor a little:
1 tsp minced garlic, 1 Tbsp grated ginger root, 1-1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
Thanks so much for posting such an easy and delicious recipe, I may never buy Panda Express or Pei Wei again. :)
