Great and easy recipe. I added fresh carrots from our garden (as shown in the picture) and a whole onion cut in long slices. I also added white pepper which gave it a little more bit and I used wok oil instead of the vegetable oil. It was delicious! We served it with crispy noodles. Read More

Something was missing. I just couldn't put my finger on it. But it did satisfy my craving for chinese. Plus its super healthy. I made mine with broccoli and carrots. I also cut the ginger in half as it is a very strong spice for my tastebuds. I will make it again but with a few tweeks. Read More

This was great! I made it the same way as the recipe except I added a few more ingredients. Like others I included carrots onion and celery into what was already there about a half a cup of each for one serving. When making the mixture I put in a little oyster sauce. I found that rounded out the flavor a bit. I also added salt and pepper to the chicken before cooking. To finish I used sesame seed oil instead of vegetable. The sesame flavor was enough with the oil that I felt I didn't need the sesame seeds. Very good I will be making it again soon! Read More

This was just like the chinese food that I love to get at the restaurants. The only thing I would do is to double the sauce because its so good! Read More

Great easy recipe with plenty of flavor. I would probably add a few more veggies next time; maybe some broccoli carrots and red pepper. I bet this would be good with shrimp as well. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I doubled the sauce ingredients except for the chicken broth. Next time will use low sodium soy sauce it was a little too salty for us. Also used sesame oil instead of canola added carrots and left out sesame seeds. Easy healthy delicious recipe! Read More

Totally underwhelmed. I added onions (how can you not have onions?) and green pepper. Found it to be very bland. It needs something to perk up the flavour - lemon or lime juice maybe? Not sure. Disappointed in it. Read More

I thought this was good but way too much ginger. Was I the only one? I used one teaspoon. Doubled the garlic. Read More
