    This was delicious!!! I made with a tri color quinoa and it came out delicious! My husband loved it and said it's better than regular Chinese takeout and I completely agree. I will be making this again without any changes unless to switch up the veggie with whatever I have on hand. Thank you for the quick and yummy recipe!!!

    Very delicious and easy to make. Will make it soon again. I served it with quinoa instead of rice and it was just perfect.

    This was yummy, with a lot less guilt than ordering takeout. Pretty easy to prepare. A must for ginger lovers like us! I served it over white rice.

    Was very easy to prep. Omitted the cornstarch and used the sauce as a marinade for chicken skewers cooked on the BBQ. Marinated cubed white meat overnight (included the garlic, ginger and green onions) in a zip top bag and then just prepped the skewers 5 mins before placing on the grill. Was deelish! Will definitely become one of our family staples. Thank you and looking forward to trying out the Wok recipe!

    A wonderfully easy dish to prepare and portion out for the rest of the week. I made this is a large frying pan with high sides- came out fine, but I think a wok would brown the chicken better. Off to get a wok!! First time I made it w/out ginger (I forgot to get it) and it was still good. But it's much better with the wafty!! ginger tossed into the mix!

    quick fix and tasty though I did use left over roast chicken so no need to stir fry the chicken, will make this again
