This was great!!!! I had to cut back on the soy because I usually buy the lite soy and I accidentally bought the regular, so for me that is too much sodium. I just used 2 TBS., and increased the water by 1 TBS. I used carrots, peas, green onions and added waterchestnuts. I had to resist the urge to put red pepper flakes in this, because, I LOVE red pepper flakes in stir fry. I will next time I make this. Thanks Sage for posting such a great and versatile recipe.

MMMM garlic! Used 12 oz chicken breast, and skipped the sherry. My vegetables were broccoli, carrots, red bell pepper, baby corn, and water chestnuts. Thanks, yum and versatile!
