    We’re trying this tonight. Andrew says he “sort of” remembers KGB Chicken. I’m not sure if it’s the stories about it or actually eating it. 😉

        It turned out great! The house smelled so good while it was cooking. I think next time I may try to decrease the amount of sugar and see how it turns out. We’re trying to loosen the hold of Annika’s sugar addiction.

        Did you find it quite sweet-tasting? I think now that you mention it I do adjust the sugar amount to less. Maybe I should update the recipe. I definitely reduced the original quantity of soy sauce that mom wrote down: 1/4 cup! I figure there’s lots of sodium in the soup mixes so a dash of soy sauce for the flavour is enough.

        The dash of soy sauce was perfect. 🙂
