This is one of my all-time favorite foods. I first had it at my best friends house in high school over 20 years ago. Her mother gave me the recipe and I have been making it ever since. I don't even like green peppers and I love them in this recipe. It is easy and the sauce is divine! For non-soy sauce/salt lovers--don't even try this recipe. The sauce is wonderful if you like the salty flavor of soy sauce, which obviously I do. For those that want a bland, non-salty light sauce, this is NOT the recipe for you! Look elsewhere! Enjoy!
- 1 1⁄2 lbs chicken, cut into 1 inch pieces
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch

I tried this delicious recipe tonight for dinner and everything worked well. The only thing I might add in the future would be some vidalia onions. I will serve it on rice next time. Very good and very healthy...thank you for sharing.
Loved it! Thanks for the recommendation of cutting back on the soy sauce and adding a bit of water. I had to leave out the green peppers and onions but added chopped mushrooms and squash. Delicious!
I would not make this recipe again. While I enjoyed the chicken and walnut combination, there are problems with the sauce. I cut back on the soy sauce to 3 T. like most reviewers advised, but that didn't solve the problem completely. There is only about 1/3 cup sauce in the entire recipe, and it became very thick and strong-tasting. I'd advise comparing other sauces to see if there is a better ratio of ingredients.
