      I would call this fast and easy. It needs a bit more taste with some sesame oil and I would add onions next time. Very good though.

      This was great and everyone who tried it loved it! To the sauce I added a little sesame oil and red pepper flakes. I also added some baby corn to the mix too. Once it was cooked I added a little Siracha hot sauce for some kick. Next time I may add some bok choy too. So much better than chinese take out.

      We liked this a lot. I would have liked some sesame oil in the regular oil next time. I used boneless chicken thighs and used bamboo shoots for the water chestnuts and I skipped the green peppers but I added some red pepper flakes for some heat. When it was time to add the cashews, I grabbed my can and realized it was almonds! I skipped the nuts too. It was still very good and I liked that is wasn't too sweet. Thank you!
