This was very good. We especially enjoyed the bit of kick from the red pepper. I used boneless chicken breasts and celery. Did not use mushrooms or pineapple just due to personal preference. I used sugar snap peas instead of snow peas. I did not have oyster sauce, so just used hoisin sauce. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!
