Skip greasy takeout food and go for this healthy and fast dinner that's so much more enjoyable. To make it even easier, warm up ready-to-serve brown rice in the microwave and supper is ready to go (with one less pan to wash). —Donna Lindecamp, Morganton, North Carolina

"This was super easy to make, but I agree with the "too salty" reviews. I was blown away by how salty it turned out. I will try again and use water instead of the sherry and see if that makes a difference. All in all, it came together quick and easy, and my kids loved it (aside from the salt), great way to sneak in veggies."

"This is very good. I double the liquids, so I have more juice for the rice. I also add broccoli and strips of red peppers. I leave out the mushrooms."

"Very very tasty. I doubled the marinade because I usually like things saucy but it was totally unnecessary. This was easy and delicious . My husband enjoyed the crunch of the snow peas. I did marinade the meat for several hours, just because I had the time at lunchtime to do my dinner prep work. Can't wait to serve this again!"
