"Excellent. Just didn't use gingerroot. I make this recipe a lot. Everyone in the family likes it. For my vegan daughter, I use fake chicken strips."

"Made this recipe and had low expectations, boy was I wrong...DELICIOUS!!! I used more soy sauce (3/4 c) and flour in place of cornstarch, crushed pineaple because I didn't have chunks with cooked thin spaghetti. It turned out awesome, even my picky 6 year old loved it. Definitely a keeper and will make again."

"We LOVE this! I substitute teriyaki sauce for the soy sauce, have subbed broccoli for the chicken it into a side dish, and usually double the sauce, the use up all the pineapple juice."

"I've made this several times, and we like it very much. Last night I tried something different with it -- substituting a package of frozen stir-fry vegetable blend for the carrots and green peppers called for; cooking it just a bit longer because the veggies were frozen. It made the recipe even quicker and, we thought, even more delicious. Highly recommended!"
