These are really good with a few additions. I think the recipe itself is missing something. I added more soy (and definitely use low sodium; the first time I used regular and it was way too salty). I also added some of the sweet chili sauce to the ground chicken, plus more sesame oil, garlic powder, carrots and cayenne. With those additions, yum!
