This was delicious. We love to make stir-frys and hubby LOVES anything with bacon. This was great!!!
Kim127, I agreed with you and thought this recipe would be delicious.....mushrooms, chicken, bacon...what's not to like?! My DH, DS and I just were not impressed. The flavors melded together so much that even though I used the Chinese 5-Spice powder - it just wasn't flavorful. Kim127, I would have posted this recipe too; it sounded so flavorful but once made was so "bland." If I were a true chef, I might be able to give suggestions to the "Food and Wine" magazine regarding this recipe but I honestly have no idea how to make it have taste.
This was OK but not a favorite of my family's. It was very greasy, not sure if I did something wrong. We weren't crazy about the spice blend either but I am sure that is just our tastes.
