Good, but quite mildly flavored. I simplified the making of it since the ingredient list and directions were a bit jumbled. We also made this more to our liking by halving the chicken and increasing the mushrooms (4 times/used shiitakes). I bet adding some vinegar and sweet chili sauce would be good in this too.

I love Vietnamese food, and there are no Vietnamese restaurants close by (only "Asian Fusion," which is not even remotely the same thing). This recipe tastes just wonderful, easily as good as what you'd get in a restaurant. Despite the long list of ingredients and instructions, it is not at all difficult to make. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks for posting!
