"Fresh and sweet, this recipe makes for a great, light dinner. The dish is really easy to make and very family friendly with its mild flavors."

MY REVIEW

"Love the simplicity! The sauce needs a little more 'zing' - I thickened it, and next time will probably add a little black or red pepper to liven it up."

"I've been making this recipe for years and it's one of my all-time favorite recipes. I skip the chicken but I'm sure is delish with it!!"

MY REVIEW

"Very easy to make and very tasty. The sauce could have had a little more flavor though. I ended up adding some more soy sauce to my individual serving. I will thicken the sauce next time with some water and cornstarch. Would definitely make again!"
