Absolutely delicious! I added carrots, mushrooms, water chestnuts and snow peas and it was fantastic! I also used authentic Asian chili sauce and rice noodles instead of substitutes. Tasted better than the local Chinese restaurant dish.
Love the flavor of this! I brown chicken in oils . Then add 1-1/2 cup chicken broth , THEN add soy sauce/ cornstarch mixture. Then continue as directed ( add some veggies) Quick and so yummy!
'lorstout' I'm going to honor and up your rating with REALLY disappointed with this recipe. Wish I'd read reviews earlier...it's desperate for at least 1.5 cups of chicken broth to make all that cornstarch work?...which I added...which dilutes all flavor as there's not enough of a base. This recipe has promise but needs a little love.
A little disappointed with this recipe. I added red pepper flakes and some other Asian spices to give it some flavor as it was a bit bland.
I have a question about the sweet chili sauce. I have Chinese chili sauce (almost a paste) that is super hot - too hot to put two tablespoons into any recipe. What is the sweet chili sauce?
