just eaten this meal - chicken was delicious, veggies were just crisp enough but meal needs a lot more sauce. Will definitelt try again and adjust sauce measures. Left by: GILL MCMAHON (13 Jan 2016)

First proper meal we have tried since buying the actifry. Works well. We substituted mushrooms for the bean sprouts. As i do when using the wok, i marinaded the chicken in honey and brandy with sesame seeds. I would have liked a bit more sauce and my wife would have prefered the vegetables to be less crunchy. Adjustments will be made next time. Definitely recommend this recioe. Left by: Brian Clamp (24 Mar 2012)
