"I used leftover chicken and added kale and red peppers to the mix. Love the sauce! We like spicy so passed Sriracha sauce at the table. Served with Chinese noodles. Will make again, for sure!"

"Delicious! I omitted the spinach...I like it but my family does not. And the second time I made it, I added baby corn and a handful of snow peas. The kids and grandchildren loved it! It's a regular now."
