    This is my version of a yummy Chinese take out we had once. The Cantonese sauce I use is my Cantonese Sauce.

      This was a good dish, and I could have almost given it five stars but I found it a little too salty tasting and the rest of my family thought so too. We all enjoyed it though. I also found it very time consuming so that when I sat down to eat, my appetite wasn't great because I was tired. I used your cantonese recipe. You could really tweak this recipe a little and make it less time consuming. Instead of using cantonese sauce, you could just make one sauce combining the ingedients of the other. You could probably cut way back on the soy sauce and maybe try it with unbattered sauteed chicken. Just some suggestions. I may work with it a little and see what I come up with because the basic flavor is really good. Thanks for sharing. :-)
