"This was simple, healthy, and tasty! My husband agrees that this one is a keeper. I took the recommendations of the above chefs and added celery (since I did not have snow peas), and water chestnuts. I also used green pepper instead of yellow. Yum!"

"This was SOOOOO good! My entire family loved this, and they generally are hard to please. It was easy to make and quick to prepare. I always try to prep for my dinners earlier in the day, which makes the evening go much faster. Will definitely make this one of my favorites."

"I made this for dinner this evening. It was really good. I forgot to buy snow peas today, so I put green, yellow and red peppers in, a little celery. I even added a piece of ginger minced. As a condiment we added some orange marmalade, and it was yummy. I definitely will make this again. --By the way, I tried to print this so it would be easier to read the recipe, and it was blocked.

""Julienned" is sliced int skinny strips..."

Reviewed Jan. 3, 2008

"This recipe calls for 'julienned' peppers. I don't know what that is. This page has related tips/videos/recipes, but none refer to 'julienned' (which, frankly, is NOT a term beginning or even many intermediate cooks know)!!!"
