    I doubled the batch for a holiday family supper. Everyone really like how all the flavors came together. I did think the sauce ended up a little to thin so I may try more cornstarch next time.

    Very good and easy, I used cooked chicken and cooked shrimp. I just made the saude and then tossed in the cooked chicken and shrimp for the last 5 min. Served over pasta, very good and fast.
