  • This recipe needs a little work but has good potential. Next time, I will add some sweetener because it was a little too sour (but, good, with ketchup!) - I will also add more water, maybe a little less mustard and more chick'n, more soy sauce, a little A1? I'd also like to try a different cooking method, maybe making small nuggets and frying?
