"I love this recipe. I just add any veggie I have on hand and it always turns out great. I used leftover black rice too."

"This was a great recipe that was really quick to put together. I used liquid aminos, which is a soy sauce substitute found in the organic aisle. It has way less sodium but I would put slightly less than the recipe called for because mine was a little has a stronger flavor. ;) Also, I used chicken breasts that I cut up into cubes and floured. Equally as good !"

"I was disappointed with this. It was so much work for a mediocre dish. If I did make it again (my daughter did like it) I would use LESS peanut butter as the flavor of that was overwhelming : ("

"I had a rough weekend where I expirmented with new recipes and they were awful, so I was hesitant to try this one. Especially with 1/4 cup of cilantro. I am glad I did. Our grocery store only had sick looking sprouts so I opted to substitue a cup of frozen carrot/peas thawed. This recipe was delicious even reheated."

I lightened it up by using lite soy sauce, brown rice, reduced fat peanut butter, and egg beaters. Delicious!"
