"We substituted french dressing for sweet and sour sauce simply because we didn't have any. It turned out great and our whole family enjoyed it."

"Absolutely delicious and so easy. Kept me out of the kitchen and looked great served to guests. And the leftovers were really good too stir-fried with some rice."
