Delicious! Swapped the carrot for various veg incl. broccoli, peas and beansprouts, fried onion and garlic. The sauce was lovely (even my father, who doesn't usually like sweet sauces, loved it) and the sesame seeds were a delicious addition. Thanks for the recipe!

OK, whose bright idea was it to cram the entire recipe into the first step? Break that up a bit!

Took 29 minuets and 48 seconds to complete. Delicious. A tip - Put in broccoli because otherwise it’s just too much carrot!

I can't give this 5 out of 5 because I followed a lot of advice given below and not the recipe in full! A BIG thank you to everyone's comments below which made our meal a success! Overall we liked this dish, it was 'zingy' and tasty but... we used 1 lime and 1 large carrot and added a red pepper, celery and spring onions to the dish to make it a bit more interesting, oh and some fresh sliced chilies on top. I didn't add ginger or garlic as we didn't have any but would consider that next time. Will make it again (subject to our changes).

Cooked this today, added garlic, chilli flakes, onions, broccoli and peppers. Absolutely delicious and quick to make with little clean up.

Cooked this last night and took advice from a previous comment. Added tablespoon of grated ginger, crushed clove of garlic, chopped and de-seeded chilli, half a red and green pepper when stir frying the chicken. On completion of the dish added 3 chopped spring onions! Very good!
