MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 27, 2010

"Very good. The sauce on the vegetables was excellent. I liked the chicken but my husband didn't think it was too flavorful. Very quick and easy to prepare. All in all, a wonderful dish."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 25, 2010

"This wasn't too bad. I thought the sauce was a bit strong on the veggies though. If I made it again, I probably would only use about half."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 29, 2010

"The only changes made was using a George Forman grill and regular soy sauce because it was what I had. My husband enjoyed the meal even though there was a touch of Anise in the seasoning. (He doesn't care for licorice.) The veggies were nice and crunchy. I also added brown rice to the dish but kept the serving down. May try it again when we have the grill out."
