Missing vinegar which is part of the important ingredients needed. The recipe also missing dark soya sauce. I hope this helps

I thought the flavor of this was all heat and the garlic / ginger combo was just flat. The chicken probably should be spiced in some way (marinate?) before cooking. I won't make again though my husband did say he liked it. Boring and not worth adapting.

Hot and chicken was bland!

We do not mind a little spice, but this was HOT.  I used less pepper flakes than it said.  The chicken was pieces themselves were BLAND.   I threw the recipe away!!!

Thank you !

Better the next day, but the sauce wasn't that flavorful.

Stir fries are a great way to use up extra veggies, but this sauce was lacking.

Served over brown rice and there was little flavor. We added salt, additional soy sauce (which was low sodium) and sambal oelek. I cut everything in half and it was enough to serve 3 people, so I imagine the whole recipe would serve 6 if served over rice.
