My family of 6 absolutely loved this recipe! Soooooo easy to make and so tasty! Everyone actually loved it and finished their plates, which is quite miraculous in our house! We put ours on vegie rice and it was healthy and still tasted delicious! Super fast to prepare too with only a few ingredients, I have 4 young children and seriously no time, so can get a bit turned off by recipes with too many fussy ingredients, so this was just perfect!
Thanks so much, will definitely be making this again! xx

I made this the other night for the first time and it was very nice, i added broccoli but next time I won’t add it till the last 45 minutes as I like it a bit crispy, I had it with boiled rice, it would be nice in lettuce cups and also as teriyaki meat pies
A great budget friendly meal with flavour 😋

I made this tonight for the first time and it was really nice, I added some broccoli but will leave it out till the last hour or a bit less next time as i prefer it to be a little crisp but very easy and very tasty.

This is our new family favourite. I make it using chicken thighs and steam some vegetables to have with it.
Anything the kids love is a winner for me.
Anyone worried about the ginger flavour. I hate ginger, but can barely notice it in this dish.
