READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by WJKing

YUUUUUMMY! Who knew I could make "Chinese" that's great??!! YOU CAN! This is a FANTASTIC recipe adapted from one published in June/July 1993 Taste of Home magazine. You won't be disappointed! Prep time does not include 2 hours of marinating.

This is a tasty dish and easy to prepare. I will probably leave out the cornstarch next time as I prefer the sauce to be more on the 'runny' side, but that is just a personal preference. You could vary it with other vegetables too, such as baby corn, fresh asparagus, bell peppers and water chestnuts. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing.
