"I really like this recipe, however I much prefer Jasmine Rice. The nutty taste of Jasmine goes well with the Chow Mien although admittedly not as healthy as Brown Rice. Thanks for sharing."
"This is a D'lish dish! I can not wait to make it again."
"Very easy and tasty. Next time I would add almonds (or water chestnuts) and red pepper flakes."
"My other half is a chinese lover; so for him to love this recipe says a lot. We do love it."
"I have quite a few different chow mein recipes, but this one is definitely a cut above the rest. None of the flavors is overcome by the others. You can taste everything and the vegetables give the whole dish a very fresh quality. I didn't make any changes, but I did sprinkle some lightly salted cashews on top before serving. This is a keeper!!"
