Wow! This has an amazing flair to it! A distinctive Asian taste... with a twist! (Maybe the cumin?). Both DH and I adored it...I've never seen him eat so many veggies in one sitting! I didn't have fennel on hand, so I added a little more bok choy to fill in and it was superb. The cook times / order of ingredients left every piece in this dish cooked perfectly. I didn't have canned roasted peppers, so I quickly roasted a fresh one and it worked great. Thanks!!

I am sorry there can only be one winner in a cookoff such as RSC. Derf, I cannot say enough about the mix and blend of flavours in your Chicken Oriental Stir Fry. Even without chicken this recipe would be absolutely delicious; each vegetable cooked to perfection following your clear detailed instructions. A keeper; you get 10 out of 5 for this one. Incidentally, the rice was there for any who desired it, but I say, why spoil a perfect stir fry with rice? Fantastic. Four adults ate until it was gone; my guests looking for more, did not believe me when I told them it was gone... (Perhaps I should double the recipe and invite them all back for a repeat)
