Fantastic.  I ordered the ginger preserves from Amazon pantry.  I was a bit concerned it would be too gingery.  Both my husband and my kid thinks fresh ginger tastes like soap, so I use it sparingly.  But both loved this dish and we definitely plan to make it again.  For the rice, I steamed some Jasmine rice to 3 cups yield, then added about 1/4 cup of sliced scallions.  Great side especially with the sauce.  I'd serve this to guests in a NY minute.  So easy and quick to prepare.

Delicious and super easy! I would cut the oil just a bit to avoid splatters (I used a nonstick pan.). Served with Brown rice and green beans sautéed with fresh ginger, garlic and a dash of soy sauce. Easy weeknight meal!

Good. I did use the apricot preserves and 1 tsp of ginger powder instead of the ginger preserves. Would also recommend a non-stick skillet or more oil. But, overall, very good. I will make again.

One of my favorite go-to recipes for thighs (I only like thighs and drumsticks). And I am Asian!

Easy and delicious. Found the ginger preserves in the English/Irish section of my local Stop and Shop. Paired this with brown rice instead of jasmine, and sauteed napa cabbage. Will make often.

Very delicious dish & super easy to make! We served it with the scallion rice and the romaine salad with the balsamic vinaigrette as suggested by another reviewer. A totally divine Asian dish!;) As good or better than the dishes they serve at the asian restaurants!;))
