    I absolutely love this recipe! It is fairly inexpensive and it serves many people. It comes from the Chinese Village Cookbook by Rhonda Yee.

      This was good...I made about 3/4 of the pasta (see the other comment below that said it was too really is. I made all of it and eyeballed what was in the pan that I had to add the noodles to and thought hmm...way too much). I used about double the soy sauce and should have quadrupled it but...yeah, it was good. It is oddly a lot of work the was yummy. I added shiitake mushrooms and onions and grilled them with the chicken. Hubby loved it too.

      We thought this was wonderful. I used pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and added about half a pound of fresh green beans so that it would be more well-balanced. The flavor was outstanding; a great easy recipe! Thank you.

      This was fairly good, although it seemed like a lot of pasta for the amount of meat. I will try it again with some veggies too! Thanks for sharing!
