“This is different from any other honey-ginger chicken recipe I have seen on here. It has 1/3 cup hot sauce in it has a little KICK! The sweet and the hot work fabulously together and always impress company! This is a favorite of mine ever since my late aunt first cooked it for me 15 years ago. Brown or white rice works well on the need something to help soak up all the yummy sauce!”
