Review And Comments

this is an easy recipe. I thought It’d be difficult and hard to make. But this was kind of better experience. It made me learn a lot, especially time management and a bit of innovations in recipes.

I have heard the name of chicken changezi lot of times and seen its recipe today. When we friends visit some restaurant, we viewed changezi in the menu but never ordered it. Now I saw the recipe and aim to make it at home. I can't wait to have its taste.
