This is a good basic sauce. Feel free to add ,perhaps a little lime juice, a pinch of cilantro, some peanut butter? Have fun!

I didn't need to add a thing to this. It's very good!! I used the dry sherry and made the sauce for a chicken stir-fry with celery, carrots, snow peas, zucchini, water chestnuts, and radishes. We really loved the taste of this sauce! Thanks Sharon, another keeper!

FANTASTIC FLAVOR!!! 5+++ stars. I doubled the recipe. I used rice wine instead of dry sherry and added some crushed red pepper into my serving (I love hot and spicy) at the end. I used chicken breast and cut them into thin slices. I sprinkle it with a little garlic salt, salt and ground ginger and let sit in fridge for 20 minutes b/fore stir frying. I served over angel hair pasta that I sprinkled with a little soy sauce before putting on plate. Next time I will try SHRIMP!!! This is sooooo gooood!!

Super easy. Very tasty. I did sub chicken stock for the water and added 1 T of peanut butter (to add dimension) and some lemon pepper. Also added a little red pepper flake to mine. Served with a stirfry of carrots, broccoli, snow peas, onion, yellow bell pepper and shrimp. Yummy lunch!
