We enjoyed this recipe but read the reviews first and made some changes. used 1/2 cup of cashews instead of peanuts for the milder taste. Added 1/2 cup of chicken broth for the sauce at the end which did provide enough an adequate amount. 1/4 tsp of crushed Red Peppers "kicked it up a notch" Next time I will saute green onions seperately and maybe add some Bok Choy and Snow Peas to add at the end. The green onions are almost non existent when cooking is done and I feel the green color would really add to the presentation and the flavors would be more defined. Read More

This is good IF you make some changes. You need to use 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 3 tablespoons rice vinegar. If you don't do this you won't have any sauce. We decided that it needs to be spiced up. This is hard to rate because made as written it would be a one star. I would also reduce the peanuts Read More

A very tasty stir fry that satisfied my tastebuds. I did scale the recipe to 3 servings (half) but used the full amount of vinegar and soy sauce. I mixed a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter in 1 cup of chicken broth and added to the simmering chicken for a mild peanut flavor throughout. Cooked angel hair pasta added to the chicken for a few minutes before serving really absorbed lots of good flavor. Read More

I thought this recipe was very good. However it does need a bit more "sauce". Next time I will add about 1/2 to 1 cup of chicken broth when adding the corn starch mixture. That should give something for the rice to soak up. I also topped this with crunch chinese noodles. That really gave it a nice crunch. Read More

I thought this recipe was delicious as-is. I like things spicy so I added a jalepeno. I thought the flavors all blended very well together. Just make sure to coarsly chop up the peanuts in a food processor or they'll be a bit overwhelming. Read More

Very very good. I use cashews instead of peanuts and I keep some chicken broth on hand to give the dish some extra sauce. I've made this several times...And am planning to make again for dinner tonight. Read More

We found this to be very good after the following changes (as suggested by others): 3/4 of a can of chicken broth added at the end. 1 cup of cashews White rice is fine with us. Covered the pan while it was simmering for 20 min. Used canned mushrooms instead of fresh. Read More

This was very tasty. I like some other reviewers also added some baby bok choy snow peas and some extra water. My husband even ate everything on his plate and he usually picks around veggies. Read More
