I made up this recipe when I was looking for good Chinese food in beautiful Oregon. Each time I make this, I change something slightly. Leftovers heat easily in the microwave or fry pan.

"This came together quickly but required quite a bit of attention. I served it with a fried egg on top and left out the peanuts. I don't have any leftovers, even with picky eaters."
