This was just fabulous! I made it with Chicken Scaloppine with Lemoncello Sauce #250814. This was perfect, I did change how you made it as it seemed like alot of work...I just fried up the peas and onions in the olive oil, thru everything else in and put a lid on it...turned out perfect...I did add a little more water to it....great recipe!

Great recipe. Very easy! I made a few small changes though. I only used 2 green onions as 6 seemed excessive. I added a Tablespoon of minced garlic when sauteeing the onions, and I used brown rice instead of jasmine. The kids absolutely raved about it! I am allergic to onions, so I didn't try it myself, but it smelled very good.
