Very good! This was fast, easy to prepare, and the instructions were very accurate. Next time I would cut down on the amount of oil as I thought it came out a bit too oily. I also expected the ginger to permeate the flavor more fully - I think perhaps mincing the ginger pieces might help spread the ginger flavor so that with each bite you would get a burst of ginger flavor. Still, this really was very tasty and I will certainly make this again. The drizzle of hot chili oil at the end was really a nice touch.

Yum! This was so quick to make, and it tasted great. I still had plenty of oil after cooking the chicken, so I did not add extra, just went ahead and added the veggies. I loved the flavor of soy sauce, sherry, and sesame oil together. Thanks for sharing! Culinary Quest '14
