"There was something off about the sauce. I think it may have been the chicken broth. I ended up keeping the other elements of the recipe and replacing the sauce with another I found."

"Very good. Will increase the amount of liquid next time."

"I've been making a version of this recipe for a couple of years. Wonderful recipe. I prefer using rice noodles instead of pasta, though. Adding stir fried broccoli adds a different texture and some color which we like. I use Dynasty That Chili Garlic Paste which gives this dish plenty of heat. In fact I use it sparingly and just put it on the table so each person can add the amount of heat desired. I like heat while husband is a tad more conservative."

"Good dish. Followed the recipe with 3 exceptions - replaced ground chicken with ground turkey, used frozen peas and carrots instead of fresh carrots, and reduced noodles to about 8 ounces. Probably would be better with a little more spice."
