    Sue Lau's Note:

    For Shae, who discovered this on a Chinese buffet. I had found this on a buffet also. It is a great little dish, with a little bite of pepper that is quite addictive!

      Sue has re-created my favorite dish from a local chinese buffet with this recipe. I will admit, Asian cooking is mysterious to me and I couldn't imagine "my dish" coming out of these ingredients...but Sue obviously knows what she is doing!! These tender chicken bites have an awesome rich peppery flavor with just a hint of sweetness. I like to slice the onion in long pieces because when you get a bite of onion with the chicken it gives it an extra surprise!! I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful this dish are just going to have to try it! Sue, thanks for all your hard work and coming up with this to-die-for recipe that will be made in this house often! :)

      A winner! I will defintly be making this one again. I added snow peas instead of the other vegies ~ would also be nice with some honey or beef. If you like Asian food, I reccomend this dish.

      Wow - yes addictive - yes wonderful- yes I'll do this again~~~~~ I too, stir fried the chicken (Used skinless breasts) I did add 1 tsp blackbean sauce and 1 tsp Hoisin. The recipe is easy to make, clear step by step instructions and very attractive to look at. Thanks SueL for another gourmet meal
